Transparency Market Research Report Added “Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020” to its database.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/04/2016 -- 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.

PCR techniques have paved the way for innovation in life sciences research and molecular diagnostics through its most potential features such as absolute detection and quantification of genetic materials such as DNA and RNA. Researchers are able to quantify and analyze rare alleles and point mutations using advanced PCR systems such as digital PCR. Currently, the market players are engaged in developing PCR systems with enhanced capabilities such as broad menu of tests, higher sensitivity and specificity.
