DNA diagnostics is a pioneer technique which has modernized the field of medical diagnostics. Numerous disease causing genes are identified by understanding complete human genome. DNA based diagnostic tests help in the detection of mutations, disease causing genes, diagnosing monogenic disorders, etc. Various diseases, such as cancer, infectious diseases, and myogenic disorders etc. are easily identified and treated. The technique is majorly attributed to the quick rate of technological advances followed by development of strong methodologies such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), microarrays, novel gene sequencing, sequencing technology, mass spectrometry and others. It is also used in prenatal diagnostics to determine mutations and genetic disorders and for clinical diagnosis. Pre-implantation diagnosis procedure by DNA diagnostic technique involves finding mutation in the 8 cell stage embryo before implantation.
Advancement in product design and technology has encouraged doctors and researchers to shift their focus from traditional diagnostic methods to novel technologies. Adoption of personalized medicines approach would positively influence the DNA diagnostics market in the near future. The optimization of sequencing technology can increase the market for DNA diagnostics.
