Digital Polymerase Chain Reaction (dPCR) is an advancement of traditional polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The traditional PCR with its limited precision and accuracy often fail to amplify small samples of nucleic acid to a detectable level. This has evoked a need of better techniques to assess the minute quantities of DNA or RNA. dPCR is more sensitive and reliable technique with improved ability to quantify the absolute amount of nucleic acid. It divides the sample into large number of fragments, each containing either one or no template nucleic acid sequence. After DNA amplification, scoring is done with the help of fluorescence, counting the score as positive for the fraction containing template sequence and negative for the sample without the template sequence. The major factors driving the global digital polymerase chain reaction market are increasing demand for innovative diagnostic techniques, increasing disease awareness, need for early diagnosis of viral, infectious and genetic disease, and increasing number of diagnostic centers across the globe. However, high cost of dPCR testing and limited expertise and accessibility, especially in the developing countries are likely to restrict the market growth.
The global digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR) market is segmented on the basis of technology, type, application, end user and geography. According to technology, the market is segmented into Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) and BEAMing Digital PCR. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into Digital PCR equipment and consumables. Based on application, it is segmented into clinical diagnostics, research and others. On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into pharmaceuticals and biotechnology industries, hospitals and clinical diagnostic centers, and university and research organizations. Geographically, the market is segmented across four regions viz., North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
