French term or phrase: substance de diagnostic
Hello,

"Selon un autre mode de réalisation particulier, le procédé ne comporte qu'une étape d'injection de substance dans le sac d'albumen. La substance injectée, appelée substance de traitement, est une substance nutritive ou hydratante ou une substance de diagnostic ou une substance thérapeutique destinée à traiter des pathologies, à stimuler l’immunité et à favoriser le développement de l'embryon de l'œuf ou celui du poussin après son éclosion."

Is it diagnosing substance or diagnostic substance?

Thank you

diagnostic substance
Explanation:
"Diagnosing substance" may seem to imply it's the substance itself that makes the diagnosis, whereas in reality it only helps the researcher make the diagnosis.
