Nat Whitney has been involved in the medical device market in China since 1983 when he managed the technology transfer of blood gas and auto chemistry in Shanghai and Guangzhou from his office at Corning Medical in Hong Kong, and has observed the dramatic growth and maturing of the China IVD market.
Whitney International was born in 1994 performing market research and importing and selling and servicing medical equipment for the next 10 years. We have "walked the walk" and understand the many rapidly changing norms in medical sales in China.
Whitney Research was born in 2006 when the distribution business was halted to concentrate on IVD market research. Mr. Whitney's experience in IVD dates back almost to the beginning, with many technical, research and business management roles at Corning Medical since 1966.
Today, Whitney Research operates from offices in Maine and in Tianjin, China.
Whitney Research is focused on China.
Our clients are primarily multinational IVD manufacturers, investors, and non profit foundations who want to know more about the IVD business in China.
We are not a publisher of generalized reports, but work only on a project basis, helping non-Chinese IVD manufacturers understand the China IVD playing field in which they participate or plan to participate.
We perform secondary research in Chinese and English and primary research with our long established Chinese friends in the IVD industry, hospital laboratories, medical insurance providers and government.
Our approach is to first understand the needs and resources of our prospective clients and then, jointly, establish goals, outcomes, and depth and breadth of research.
Once a project proposal is agreed and a timeline for delivery of report, a prepayment of 50% is required with the balance due within 30 days of delivery of the report. As part of the project, an onsite presentation with questions and answers may be arranged.
