In vitro diagnostic medical devices

The information contained in this database in the "In vitro diagnostic medical devices" section is retrieved from the manufacturers webpages. Initial information about the presence of a new device is obtained via existing repository websites (e.g. FIND; 360Dx; Biocompare and others), by using the EMM (Europe Media Monitor)-finder application, keyword-based internet searches, scientific literature or direct communication. We acknowledge all the manufacturers and repository website owners of the devices that have been here analysed and mentioned.

Scientific literature

The information contained in this database in the " Scientific literature" section is retrieved from preprints and peer-reviewed articles searched through Scopus, bioRxiv, medRxiv, Europe PMC, and other repositories. Free full-text articles were retrieved from the sources above mentioned or from PubMed Central. Not open-access ones have been retrieved directly from the publisher by using the EC. Library subscription service. We acknowledge all the authors, publishers and literature repositories of the papers that have been here analysed and mentioned.
