Thermal cycler is an equipment which amplifies nucleic acid chain formation that is RNA and DNA. Thermal cycler is also known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) machine or thermocycler. These machines are used in many laboratories to provide temperature sensitive reaction and for diagnosis of many diseases. The machine consists of heat block with many holes to withstand tubes. The cycler can work with pre-planned program by raising and lowering the temperature. In older machines, the block is submerged in an oil bath while in modern machines the equipment is provided with heating lid for temperature control.
The global thermal cycler market is expected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Improvement in the field of molecular biology, adoption of PCR testing for diagnosis due to its accuracy and convenience, and increase in research activities in academics and pharmaceutical industries are factors which are likely to drive the growth of the global thermal cycler market during the forecast period. Additionally, government funding in biotechnological research, development of next generation sequencing, robust research in the field of genetics, improvement in forensics, introduction of heat resistance polymerase enzymes, and advanced technologies such as hot start PCR and qPCR which give highly accurate results are few other drivers projected to boost the growth of the global market. However, high cost of the instruments, lack of handling knowledge, and low awareness in some of the developing countries are factors that might restrain the growth of the global thermal cycler market during the forecast period.
