Enteroviruses are a group of viruses which cause mild or moderate symptoms such as fever, cold and infectious conditions. Enterovirus can be dangerous if the infection spreads to the central nervous system. Enteroviruses mostly spread due to contact with the saliva or sputum of an infected person. Enteroviruses can create complications in individuals with health conditions such as pneumonia, brain diseases and heart conditions. Enteroviruses kit uses PCR (polymerase chain reaction) method to make billions of copies of extracted DNA from the human sample for detailed study in laboratories.
Enterovirus kits are ready to use detection kits, in which extracted DNA from the human body is added to ready to use PCR (polymerase chain reaction) master mix. Moreover, enterovirus kits include all necessary reagents which are used to detect the virus.
Global Enteroviruses Testing Kit Market: Driver
There has been a significant increase in viral infections in the past few years owing to changes in lifestyle and environment. According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 10 to 15 million people are affected with non-polio enteroviruses and thousands of people are hospitalized every year, 2015.
Pharmaceutical companies are focusing on controlling the spread of viral infections. For instance, in June 2020, Twist Bioscience, a DNA manufacturer launched a new research panel to evaluate the growing incidence of viruses such as coronaviruses, enteroviruses, rhinoviruses and other respiratory tract viral diseases using next generation sequencing approach. These factors are expected to drive global enteroviruses testing kit market.
Global Enteroviruses Testing Kit Market: COVID-19 Impact Analysis
In terms of enteroviruses testing, while performing test and extracting DNA from patients, various parts of the equipment come in contact with patients, which can lead to risk of spread of infection through aerosolized particles. Furthermore, disturbance in supply chain of products due to lockdowns implemented in several countries has hampered the supply of enteroviruses testing kits. These factors are expected to restrain growth of the global enteroviruses testing kit market.
Global Enteroviruses Testing Kit Market: Restraints
Enterovirus testing involves use of PCR (polymerase chain reaction), but it is associated with some limitations such as high technical and set-up costs and also the need for greater aseptic conditions while carrying out testing procedures. These factors are expected to restrain growth of the global enteroviruses testing kit market.
Global Enteroviruses Testing Kit Market Regional Analysis
On basis of regions, the global enteroviruses testing kit market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. In North America, pharmaceutical companies are focusing on research and development in the developing technologies for diagnosis of enterovirus diseases to strengthen their share in the global enteroviruses testing kit market. For instance, in 2018, QIAGEN, a supplier of medical devices for molecular testing, launched QIAstat-Dx for diagnosis of viral infections such as enteroviruses, influenza infections, approved by the U.S Food Drug and Administration.
The enteroviruses testing kit market in Europe is expected to exhibit significant growth owing to increasing focus of pharmaceutical companies on research and development. For instance, in 2016 ViroCyt, a subsidiary of Sartorius AG, developed ViroTag EV71, a rapid detection system for enteroviruses family, which detect the virus in less than one minute.
