“The following list presents 10 persons who have made a significant impact on the IVD industry.” This is how the magazine IVD Technology begins and then gives a short description of each of the 10 people (1). Two of the people listed in the top 10 happen to be on the editorial advisory board of IVD Technology (2). Hmmm…..
About half of the editorial advisory board are in regulatory affairs and four of the top 10 are also in regulatory affairs (including the two above). In case you’re wondering, Leonard Skeggs, the inventor of the auto-analyzer didn’t make the list! OK, to be fair, the text also says “Efforts were made to ensure that this list reflects contributions in both the regulatory and scientific areas.”, but the title and first sentence are misleading.
