In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) include reagents, instruments, and systems intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, including the determination of the state of health, in order to treat or prevent disease. The reagents, instruments and systems are intended for use in the collection, preparation, and examination of specimens taken from the human body. The categories tracked under this market are Cardiac Disease, Hematological Disorders, Hormonal Disorders, Metabolic Disorder, Infectious Disease, IVD Analyzers and Reagents, Oncology and Reproductive Health Diagnostics. Treponema pallidum is the causative organism for Syphilis and cannot be cultivated in vitro, resulting in a need for specific IVD tests, rather than the more usual bacteriology testing.

In 2022, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the treponema pallidum tests market in Italy was Abbott Laboratories followed by Becton Dickinson and Co, Siemens, Werfen Life Group SAU, H.U. Group, Omega Diagnostics Group, DiaSorin, Trinity Biotech, bioMerieux, Tecan Group, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Arlington Scientific, Rapid Labs, Lorne Laboratories, Sekisui Diagnostics and Cardinal Health.
The identification of the Treponema pallidum pathogen is usually performed by using Direct and Indirect detection methods. It includes Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL) Tests, Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) Tests, Unheated Serum Reagin (USR) Tests, Treponema Passive Particle Agglutination (TPPA) Tests, Treponema Pallidum Hemagglutination (TPHA) Tests, Fluorescent Treponemal Antibody Absorption (FTA-ABS) Tests, Enzyme Immuno Assay/Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (EIA/ELISA) Tests and Other Tests. Direct Detection Methods: Direct detection methods include the detection of Treponema pallidum by microscopic examination of fluids and smears from lesions, histological examination of tissues, or nucleic acid amplification methods such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Nucleic acid amplification methods are not standardized for the testing of Treponema pallidum as they are under investigation. Indirect Detection Methods: Indirect detection methods for Treponema pallidum include serological tests which are broadly classified into Non-treponemal and Treponemal tests. Non-Treponemal Tests: Non-Treponemal tests are used to detect the antibodies or biomarkers that occur as a result of the cellular damage caused due to the syphilis spirochete. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved Non-treponemal standard tests which include the VDRL (Venereal Disease Research Laboratory) slide tests, the RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) card tests, the USR (Unheated Serum Reagin) tests and the TRUST (Toluidine Red Unheated Serum Test).
Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the treponema pallidum tests devices market within Italy was expected to be over $6m in 2022.
