DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/n39gx2/global_digital) has announced the addition of the "Global Digital PCR (dPCR) Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The Global dPCR market to grow at a CAGR of 26.45% over the period 2014-2019
The dPCR technology is an innovative PCR that allows amplification and directs quantification of nucleic acids such as DNA, RNA, cDNA, and methylated DNA with high precision. The dPCR technology is not dependent on the number of amplification cycles to quantify the initial sample amount and provides absolute quantification of nucleic acids. dPCR can analyze a small amount of sample and provide higher accuracy, precision, and efficiency than the conventional PCR technology.
The adoption of dPCR technology is a major trend upcoming in this market. Advanced dPCR technology and products provide a high degree of accuracy and productivity in research and drug discovery and reduce the consumption of reagents.
According to the report, one of the major drivers of the market is advances in dPCR technology. dPCR technologies and products have improved because of automation, accuracy, sensitivity, and ease of handling. In addition, advanced dPCR products provide greater efficiency and productivity in research and drug discovery and help reduce the time taken for the development of new drugs.
Further, the report states that availability of alternative technologies is a major challenge that the market faces. Availability of other sequencing technologies such as other PCR techniques and NGS poses a serious threat to the adoption of dPCR technology.
The dPCR technologies have a broad range of applications in various fields including:
- Drug discovery and development
- Clinical diagnostics
- Bio-Rad Laboratories
- RainDance Technologies
- Thermo Fisher Scientific
Other Prominent Vendors
- Abbott Laboratories
- Analytik Jena
- Becton Dickinson
