Opportunity: Increasing demand for next-generation sequencing:
NGS-based companion diagnostic tests aim to unlock molecular information from each patient's tumor genome to guide treatment decisions for cancer therapies. Next-generation sequencing detects multiple biomarkers for multiple drug therapies in a shorter time frame as compared to other sequencing techniques. The use of NGS panels for biomarker measurement in one test has the potential to help in the treatment of many different types of cancers. The various technological advancements in NGS also provide market players with an immediate competitive edge over players providing other technologies such as PCR, ICH, and ISH. As a result, major market players are focusing on developing companion diagnostic products based on NGS.
