EDMA - European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association

Company Description

EDMA, the European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association is the trade association that represents the In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) industry active in Europe.

In Vitro Diagnostics are the tests performed on biological samples to diagnose or rule out a disease. They are used for disease screening, monitoring therapy and to ensure the safety of the blood used in transfusions. About 64% of the information held on the patient record comes from diagnostic tests. IVDs have a broad scope ranging from sophisticated technologies performed in clinical laboratories to simple self-tests such as for pregnancy.

EDMA membership brings together 22 National Associations in European countries and 43 major companies engaged in the research, development, manufacture or distribution of IVD products. Through its affiliated National Associations, EDMA represents in total more than 500 companies across Europe.

Since its establishment in 1979, EDMA acts in co-operation with other European and international trade associations representing medical devices, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology in general, as well as with scientific societies and patients organisations to make a real difference in health and life quality.
