Nucleic Acid Testing: A Global Market Report
San Jose, California (Vocus) June 3, 2010
Nucleic acid testing (NAT) is one of the fastest-growing segments of the molecular diagnostics market. Nucleic acid tests outweigh the traditional culture techniques in terms of sensitivity and speed. NAT based tools are widely being used for developing in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) and for discovery and manufacture of novel biomarkers. NAT is the most advanced diagnostic test for examining pathogens of interest and other various genetic disorders. Despite NAT being in the developing stages, the tests are one of the fastest growing segments of the IVD industry. The segment is mainly driven by Viral load applications, HIV, hepatitis and CMV diagnostics.
The US represents the world’s largest market for nucleic acid testing as stated by the new market research report on Nucleic Acid Testing. Adoption of the nucleic acid testing by the clinical laboratory field has been at a rather slow pace than estimated. However, the adoption rate of molecular diagnostics is most likely to increase in the coming years, thanks to the advent of various new technologies such as blotting technologies, amplification technologies, microarray, RNA inhibition analysis, probe technologies, electrophoretic technologies and others.
Major players in nucleic acid testing profiled in the report include Abbott Laboratories Inc., Applied Biosystems Group, Becton, Dickinson and Company, Genomic Health Inc., Genzyme Corporation, Myriad Genetic Inc., Novartis AG, Roche Diagnostics and Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Inc., among others.
