Market Spotlight: Real-Time PCR

Real-time PCR systems, which is also called quantitative PCR (qPCR), quantifies DNA as it accumulates in the reaction after each amplification cycle.  Quantification typically involves the use of fluorescent dyes that attach to double-stranded DNA, or the use of modified DNA oligonucleotide probes that fluoresce when hybridized with complementary DNA.

With over 25 years on the market, real-time PCR continues to be one of the most critical techniques used in biological research, clinical diagnostics and applied markets. While the market for real-time PCR is extremely mature, it remains critically important to suppliers and scientists alike. Nearly half of life science researchers use real-time PCR instrumentation and consumables. With an overall budget growth of 8% across the global market, real-time PCR isn’t slowing down anytime soon. In fact, the market is ripe for new and established suppliers alike to carve out market share.
