Molecular diagnostics, also called as MDx, is a branch of in vitro diagnostics that helps in identification of nucleic acids. Molecular diagnostics assist in identifying nucleic acids in foreign organisms or genetic markers of any patient. MDx tests is the fastest growing branch of in vitro diagnostics and its growth is influenced by factors such as rapid turnaround time, high sensitivity, low cost and convenient workflow. It is a highly regulated area of biotechnology and requires 510(k)/IVD clearance.
MDx employs different assays and platforms that are paired with several technologies for identification of genetic variations. The various technologies used in MDx are PCR, qPCR, TMA, FISH, capillary electrophoresis, next-generation sequencing, and microarrays. The increase in the incidence of chronic diseases, growth in aging population, availability of different types of tests, and development in pharmacogenomics will be the major growth drivers of this market.
