Total Value of Ownership

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) estimates the direct and indirect costs associated with acquiring and operating an instrument, while Total Value of Ownership (TVO) builds on TCO to produce the best possible outcomes for an entire healthcare system over the lifetime of an instrument or solution. See how different laboratories around the world have successfully applied the TVO methodology, and how it helped them reach their goals.
