Manufacturers are engaged in adopting inorganic growth strategies such as collaborations, and mergers and acquisitions to enhance their product portfolio and strengthen their position in the market
The increasing collaboration activities by key players is expected to boost the global isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology (INAAT) market growth. For instance, in January 2017, Diagenode S.A. entered into a collaboration with Heidelberg University Hospital and German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). Under this collaboration, Diagenode S.A focuses on development of high-sensitivity DNA amplification method. This method is for RNA sequencing library preparation solutions.
Key players in the market are focused on product launches for molecular diagnosis, which is expected to propel the global isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology (INAAT) market growth
For instance, in April 2019, QuantaBio launched new freeze-dried lyophilized single-reaction reagent, Qscript lyo 1-step. Qscript lyo 1-step is a dry, stable, easy, and better 1-step RT-qPCR (quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction). It is highly sensitive and reproducible RT-qPCR. The reagent contains thermo-stable polymerase.
Isothermal Nucleic Acid Amplification Technology (INAAT) Market - Regional Analysis
North America isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology (INAAT) market is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period, owing to increasing product launches by key players. For instance, in September 2017, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. launched RT-PCR (reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction) kit in the U.S market. RT-PCR assay kit is a one-step procedure, where reverse transcription and gene amplification is performed in a single tube. RT-PCR assay kit is used for DNA identification and amplification.
Moreover, Europe is also expected to witness significant growth in the global isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology (INAAT) market, owing to increasing product launches in the region. For instance, in December 2019, Mast Group Ltd., a European company, launched MAST ISOPLEX CRE-ART kit, which uses loop mediated amplification (LAMP) kit for the rapid molecular detection of the most seven prevalent carbapenemase families: OXA-48, OXA-23, OXA-24/40, KPC, VIM, NDM and IMP. The carbapenemase family involves enterobacteriaceae (E.coli, Salmonella, Klebsiella, and Shigella), where some of them reside in the gut of humans while the remaining are parasites.
INAAT offers advantage over the conventional detection system by detecting the test sample in 30 minutes run time and availability of ready to use lyophilized pellets containing primers and reagents, which are used directly for the reaction, therefore the sample preparation process is completely eliminated. The above factors are expected to fuel the global isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology market growth over the forecast period.
