Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ 8d3dd7/commercializing_mo) has announced the addition of the "Commercializing Molecular Diagnostics: Products, Services, Companies and Global Market" report to their offering.

This report is about the molecular diagnostics market, including systems, consumables and clinical lab services. These key medical products and services use technologies that can detect single or multiple genomic, protein, metabolomic or other '-omic' biomarkers.

The detailed study shows that molecular diagnostic companies are expecting continued strong growth. This report shows the major areas of this dynamic market landscape, including the various views of this growing multi-billion dollar market. The study sizes the market and projects the 5-year trend. The report charts the developments of more than 80 companies involved in this dynamic industry.

This report discusses government regulatory initiatives to accelerate the approvals of emerging molecular diagnostics by integrating biomarkers and companion pharmacogenomic tests. Myriad, Veridex, Genomic Health, Agendia and others are gaining traction detecting cancers. Roche's Affymetrix-based tests measure how patients respond to 30 or more currently marketed drugs. These products enable the emerging field of personalized medicine. The passing of the GINA law in the US might foster the growth of more molecular diagnostics, clinical lab services and other related genetic testing services.

This study is full of interesting data and includes more than 43 figures and tables. The tables provide data about technologies, companies, product pipelines, partnerships and more. The study also has additional data such as the global incidence and prevalence of major diseases. The report analyzes partnering deals and includes several years of alliance and M&A data.
