Molecular Cytogenetics Market - Forecast to 2019

DUBLIN, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Molecular Cytogenetics Market - Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.


Molecular cytogenetics refers to the study of chromosomal structures with the use of molecular techniques. The technique provides a combination of both molecular and cytological approach to research and diagnosis. Molecular cytogenetics is considered as an indispensable tool for the diagnosis and research of numerous chromosomal aberrations. The technique is preferred over traditional chromosomal banding technique as traditional techniques provide low resolution level and may escape detection of copy number variations.

The breakthrough in the molecular cytogenetics technologies such FISH and aCGH are providing new dimensions to the areas of research and molecular diagnostics. These techniques are considered as invaluable tool for gene mapping, gene discovery and complex disease trait analysis. Molecular cytogenetics facilitates diagnosis and prognosis of diseases associated with hematological malignancies and solid tumors at molecular level. Likewise, alongwith diagnosis and prognosis of tumors, the technique is facilitating the practice of personalized medicines. The global molecular cytogenetics market was valued at USD 469.2 million in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23.4% from 2013 to 2019 to reach at an estimated value of USD 1.9 billion in 2019.

Currently, aCGH technique is gaining momentum as compared to FISH technique owing to higher resolution over other traditional banding techniques. Earlier, where cytogenetics field was limited to identification of chromosome structure, it has now expanded its horizons to assessment of structural and functional genetic anomalies. FISH characterized by its ability to interpret information at genome level currently, captures the lion's share of the molecular cytogenetics market. The technique has been utilized over the past decade for identification of various diseases and in suggesting accurate treatment options to the physicians. The technique is known for its accuracy, speed, sensitivity and high resolution over the traditional methods. Further, owing to its growing importance in laboratories the technique is backed by technological advancements such as improved fluroscence microscopes and digital imaging. Moreover, the technique is also supported by ongoing developments in the field of genomics and bioinformatics. FISH has become an essential tool for the validation of diseases and is being extensively used in laboratories and hospitals.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
