Classification for IVDDs is done according to criteria such as: whether the test is used for screening, diagnostics or monitoring; the technical or medical expertise of the intended user; the importance of the information to the diagnosis (sole determinant or one of several); the natural history of the disease; and the impact of the result (true and false) to the individual and/or to the public health.
