Surveying Pathologists to Understand Cancer Diagnostic Testing

Gauging the International Market for Diagnostic Testing for Cancer Patients


A consulting client wanted to gauge the market for diagnostic testing for cancer patients across multiple geographies. The client wanted to speak with pathologists from various countries who have experience processing companion diagnostic tests for cancer patients.

They specifically were looking for pathologists with expertise with different diagnostic testing modalities.

The GLG Approach

GLG designed and ran a B2B survey of 349 pathologists who had experience with the following diagnostic testing modalities: next-generation sequencing, polymerase chain reaction, fluorescent in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, and flow cytometry.

GLG partnered with our trusted research partners in EMEA and APAC to field and translate the survey into nine different languages, targeting anatomical, clinical, and molecular pathologists from 12 countries.


The survey answers gave the client an understanding of how pathologists used different diagnostic tests, and their involvement in setting diagnostic or clinical guidelines for oncology diagnostics in their countries.
