Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Market: Technologies, Markets and Players


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/06/2017 -- Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) enables DNA sequencing and helps in determining the order of its building blocks. PCR finds applications in disease diagnosis, forensic sciences, and identification of bacteria and viruses. PCR is an excellent technique for rapid detection of microbial contamination and pathogens, including those complicated to culture. These techniques are precise and robust methods that rely on polymerase enzyme to amplify trace amounts of DNA/RNA fragments by creating several identical or near-identical copies. The demand for greater efficiency and productivity in the pharmaceutical industry has led to the growth of this market.
