Molecular diagnostics (MDx) is a new class of diagnostic tests that identify nucleic acids or proteins to test the status of a disease. These nucleic acids or proteins, which belong to individual patients or foreign organisms, help determine a specific therapy, or risk of developing a specific disease, or other health conditions. MDx is the fastest growing segment within the in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) space, driven by accuracy, high sensitivity, fast turnaround time, easy workflow, and cost-effective testing. Owing to these factors, the molecular diagnostics market crossed $4.8 billion in 2011, and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 9.1% in the next five years.

MDx involves instruments and reagents that leverage multiple technologies to identify genetic variations. The technologies utilized in molecular diagnostics include polymerase chain reaction (PCR), transcription mediated amplification (TMA), hybridization (In-situ Hybridization & fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)), DNA Sequencing, next generation sequencing (NGS), microarrays, and others.

Molecular diagnostics (MDx) has emerged as one of the largest and fastest growing segments in the In vitro Diagnostic READ MORE >
