Global direct-to-consumer genetic testing market: Top emerging trend

Next-generation sequencing and biochip for present and future genetic diagnosis is an emerging trend in the market space. The development of sophisticated technologies such as microarrays, next-generation sequencing, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and automated DNA sequencing has opened new avenues for cancer biomarkers. These can detect abnormalities in the gene expression and the genetic structure of cancer cells. They can also analyze the changes in DNA, ribonucleic acid (RNA), and chromosomes from the tissue sections of tumors. At present, physicians are focusing on the early detection of cancer. Hence, the adoption of tissue-based biomarkers is increasing. This has led many companies such as Illumina and Roche Diagnostics to focus on the development of next-generation sequencers.
