A technometric approach based on the compilation of national technical specification of processes and products and their international comparison was applied for the analysis of technological positions in human diagnostics. In particular, diagnostics utilizing monoclonal antibodies or DNA probes were compared between Japan, USA and West-Germany. The results indicate that technical standards of selected immunoassays on the market are rather high in all three countries. New developments in this field like the utilization of recombinant antibody technology are pursued most intensely in the USA. The leading position in the development of DNA probe diagnostics is occupied by the USA, Japan and Germany are lagging behind considerably.
