Next Generation Sequencing in Latin America

NEW YORK, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Next Generation Sequencing in Latin America

This report, Next Generation Sequencing in Latin America, is a look at the use of DNA sequencing systems in the region, based on Survey conducted by VA Consultadoros in Fall 2013. The survey focused on instrumentation, with a goal of providing a complete count of NGS systems sold to customers in key Latin American Countries.
Latin America is a focus for healthcare markets. During 2000-2010 the region went through its highest economic growth period in the last four decades. Economics brought almost a third of the total population in the region into the
middle class status—with around 70 percent of them living in Brazil, Mexico and Argentina. The economic development has translated into investment in these nation's healthcare systems, which in terms has increased the focus on high-end biotechnology instrument spending for clinical research and diagnostics.

Genomics studies product cycle with Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology in Latin America (LatAm) is in its exponential phase and market growth is larger than the regional investment in Science and Technology (S&T) compared against the expenditure in S&T as a percentage of GDP. Because of that is necessary to know more details about the market dynamics, products/applications segmentation and main purchase drivers.

As part of its coverage, this report contains the following data:

Number of Next Generation Sequencing Systems Installed by Country
• Others

Brands of Next Generation Sequencing Systems Installed In Latin America, Cross-Referenced By Country
• Roche
• Illumina
• Life
• Others

Next Generation Sequencing Systems by Throughput Category

The survey was performed interviewing Distributors with local or regional presence, opinion leaders, manufacturers of systems and reagents for the Life Sciences market segment, research institutes and tender's calls. Twenty two interviews were performed that let gather information about eight countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Uruguay) along the period June/September 2013.

This market survey and analysis shows information about geographical distribution, lab category distribution, manufacturer's analysis, instruments distribution by throughput category and market trends for the coming years. As part of its coverage, applications were not in the scope of this report.

The report is collaboration between Kalorama Information and VA Consultora y Asociados. VA Consultora y Asociados is a consultant company founded and directed by Dr. María Victoria Allais, with more than 20 years in the IVD market and its different segments. Internal knowledge and expertise lead to real time intelligence on the diagnostic market including new technologies and forecasting. In-depth qualitative and quantitative research focused on LATAM region and country specific trends. More information is available at:

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 ...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
