NGS Sample Preparation Market Introduction
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a genome analysis platform which is more affordable, rapid and accurate. NGS is built upon first generation sequencing technologies to generate accurate and cost-effective results of sequencing. Next generation sequencing is a powerful platform which has made it possible to simultaneously sequence thousands to millions of DNA molecules. This powerful tool is revolutionizing areas such as genetic diseases, personalized medicine, and clinical diagnostics by providing a high throughput option with the capability for sequencing multiple individuals at the same time.
All NSG platforms need a library which can be prepared by generating a collection of DNA fragments for the sequencing. NGS libraries are generally prepared by fragmenting a sample of genomic DNA and ligating both fragment ends with specialized adapters. These adapter sequences provide a universal priming site to sequence primers by allowing for library hybridization to the sequencing chips. An alternative process called tagmentation constitutes a combination of fragmentation and ligation reactions into a single step. These adapter-ligated fragments are later PCR amplified and gel purified.
NGS Sample Preparation Market – Competition Landscape
Rise in adoption of genomics for developing innovative diagnostic tools and tests and development of precision & personalized medicines has led to surge in collaboration among NGS tools & service providers and diagnostic & pharmaceutical companies. For an instance, in June 2017, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company and QIAGEN entered into an agreement for development gene expression profiles (GEPs) using NGS technology for former’s immuno-oncology (I-O) therapies in cancer treatment. In 2017, Illumina partnered with China’s KingMed Diagnostics to use its NGS technology for oncology and genetic disease testing.

Accurate, Rapid and Affordable Platforms for Gene Sequencing & Analysis -
NGS offers accurate and rapid gene sequencing and analysis for researchers. As the adoption for genetics in healthcare and other life sciences related industries is growing, more and more players are introducing their products and services for NGS sample preparation. With the surge in number of suppliers, the cost for NGS sample preparation is likely to decline. Further key players are striving to introduce more affordable and accurate NGS solutions. For an instance, in 2014 Agilent Technologies, Inc. launched its HiSeq X10 NGS platform which made NGS affordable to many researchers across the globe, its recent introduction of NovaSeq NGS platform is likely to revolutionize the NGS processes by further reducing the procedure costs.
Limited Availability in Emerging Markets & Lack of skilled operators hinders the market growth
Although costs related to NGS have reduced to an extent; however, it is not adopted across developing markets. Further lack of skilled workforce to operate and use advanced NGS tools and post sequencing analysis are likely to hamper the growth of the NGS sample preparation market in emerging markets such as Latin America, Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa.
