DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Prenatal and Newborn Genetic Screening and Testing Markets (by Application [Carrier Testing, Prenatal Screening, Newborn Testing, Newborn Screening], by Type [Services, Kits] by Geographic Region)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The prenatal and newborn genetic screening and diagnostic testing market has already become a significant market, and it continues to grow - driven by several major factors. The number of genetic tests continues to grow. While many discoveries have been made about the causes of genetic disorders, there remains much more to learn before many of these discoveries can be used as clinical tests - but progress is also being made on this front. While potential causes of inherited disorders are still often evaluated on a gene by gene basis, technology advances such as chromosomal microarrays and DNA sequencing are making it possible to test panels to detect mutations associated with many different disorders in a single test.
Within the prenatal and newborn genetic screening market, non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is driving the market. Much of the focus and attention in recent years has been on the emergence and growing use of complex LDTs based on technologies such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), microarrays, next generation sequencing, or other complex technology.
A growing number of genetic tests has been made possible by advances in technology, including advances in chromosomal analysis - from traditional karyotyping to fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and then to chromosomal microarrays and next generation sequencing. Detection of single gene mutations has been made possible with FISH and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology and is moving into even new possibilities with sequencing-based tests that can evaluate large numbers of genes simultaneously.
