Next generation sequencing (NGS) is a disruptive technology with an ever-increasing number of users and applications. As such, it is the fastest growing and most attractive segment of all the different technologies that comprise the genomics universe. On a global scale, we estimate that about 19% of life science researchers perform NGS in their work.
At the core of every cutting edge technology are the tools required to execute it, and next generation sequencing is no exception. Much of the hype surrounding NGS has centered on the instruments—ranging from benchtop models to those with production-scale capacity.
It is thanks to these tools that NGS has become a reality, allowing researchers to identify genomes, transcriptomes and epigenomes at high speeds and with a degree of clarity never before thought possible.
But preparing samples for sequencing is no small piece of the puzzle, as is evidenced by the growing number of companies that are jumping onto the NGS sample preparation bandwagon.
NGS Sample Prep Market Scan: Pinpointing Customer Needs and Opportunities for Growth targets the manufacturers and suppliers of NGS sample prep to help identify the usage, preferences and differentiators in a market that has attracted a significant number of players.
Suppliers recognize that there are fewer barriers to entry in the sample prep space compared to developing new sequencing platforms, thereby making sample prep product development more attractive—and on the rise.
Inherent in the sample prep market are multiple opportunities to address differences in sequencing platforms, methods of DNA fragmentation and, ultimately, the conversion of DNA or RNA samples into application-specific NGS libraries.
In this study, we will identify bottlenecks and areas that are causing the most frustration to researchers, but also point directly to opportunities for innovation.
We will cover areas of growth by application, segment and region. We will also examine how automation can conceivably change the speed, consistency, accuracy and ease with which researchers can expect to conduct next generation sequencing now and in the future.
With so many suppliers to choose from, how can a single supplier stand out? The foundation of a successful differentiation strategy is often a detailed understanding of the external environment.
