Lab Sensor Solutions, Inc.: "Licenses a complete solution for tracking temperature of clinical samples while in transit between the collection location and the main laboratory."

Lab Sensor Solutions (LSS) develops complete mobile solutions for the monitoring and tracking of temperature for materials used in healthcare. This segment of the healthcare market is often referred to as the Healthcare Cold Chain Logistic (HCCL) market. The HCCL market includes the tracking, recording and maintenance of proper temperatures during the transport and storage of:

• Clinical Laboratory Samples (blood, urine and tissue biopsies)

• Biopharmaceuticals and Vaccines

• Organs and Whole Blood and Plasma

• Laboratory Reagents

• Clinical Trial Materials

The IMARC Group, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms, determined that the total size of the global HCCL services market is expected to expand from US$ 7.9 billion in 2013 to nearly US$ 11.4 billion by 2018 (an increase of 8% per year). The North American share of this market is estimated to be about 35.5% or US$ 2.8 billion in 2013. 

Go to Market Strategy: While LSS has interest in serving the whole HCCL market, management has decided to begin focusing on the Clinical Laboratorysegment. This segment is estimated to be about 24% or US$ 1.9B of the total HCCL market. LSS will enter this market in 2014 with T-Tracks™, a complete temperature tracking and maintenance solution for clinical laboratory samples while they are in transit. The company will continue to focus exclusively on this market segment until 2016. During 2016 LSS will aggressively extend its product offering to include additional segments of the HCCL market. This market expansion is included in the five-year financial projections.
