Hemoglobin is a protein found in the red blood cells (RBCs) that carries out oxygen transportation throughout the body. Hemoglobin tests are carried out to measure the amount of hemoglobin present in the blood. These tests are usually performed during complete blood count as a routine health checkup or to determine the presence of any disease, which could occur due to low count of RBCs. Patients commonly undergo hemoglobin test due to reasons such as fatigue, poor health, or unexplained weight loss. The centralized hemoglobin testing methods are useful for the diagnosis of diabetes and anemia.
In home care testing, the laboratories send a professional person to the patients doorstep for blood sample collection and there is no need to visit laboratories or hospitals for tests. After the tests are conducted, the results are electronically sent back to the patient.
As most patients prefer home care testing to laboratories, there is growth in demand for direct-to-consumer testing, which is a major factor that drives the market growth. Moreover, the emergence of advanced techniques has improved the ease of testing and provides quick test results. Hence, the development of advanced hemoglobin testing devices is further expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. However, high cost and maintenance associated with hemoglobin testing may hinder the market growth.
