Global DNA Probes-based Diagnostics Market: Overview
The global DNA probes-based diagnostics market is expected to witness robust growth in the forthcoming years. The human genome is estimated to contain about 100,000 genes and potentially, an irregularity in any of these can result in a hereditary trait or disease. DNA probes-based technology is associated with the examination of the chemical structure of DNA by undoing the presence of anomalous gene sequence on the DNA strand. It is extensively implemented in diagnostics and also in other fields such as molecular biology, microfabrication, data handling, instrumentation development, surface chemistry, and biological sample preparation. Public awareness of these techniques for prenatal diagnosis and carrier detection is rising rapidly and may result in a significant increase in the demand for such services.

Global DNA Probes-based Diagnostics Market: Drivers and Restraints
The global DNA probes-based diagnostics market is primarily driven by the increasing prominence of the technology in diagnosing infectious diseases including vaginitis. Over the past few years, the investments in pharmaceuticals and pharmacogenomics research and development have increased substantially. This has paved way for advancements in DNA array technologies, leading to the launch of new equipment facilitating execution of tests with higher speed, accuracy, and reliability and is, therefore, influencing the growth of the market positively. Moreover, the advent of novel methods for high-volume testing is augmenting the market. Growing geriatric population and rising disposable income are some of the other factors fuelling the global DNA probes-based diagnostics market.
On the other hand, there are certain limitations associated with this technology that are hampering the growth of the global market. These limitations include genetic heterogeneity, recombination between the marker and disease alleles, and incorrect pedigree data or non-paternity leading to erroneous diagnosis. However, the increasing penetration of automation in diagnosis tests is likely to create immense growth opportunities for the global DNA probes-based diagnostics market.
