NGS Based Molecular Diagnostics Market Challenges –
Delay in the approval of new NGS based molecular diagnostics tests and dearth of professionals limiting its use:
The major challenge for the market is that regulatory and legal requirements applied to NGS based molecular diagnostics are becoming more stringent. For more than 20 years, the FDA has emphasized that it has supervisory authority over LDTs (laboratory-developed tests), but it has chosen to exercise enforcement discretion over NGS based molecular diagnostics tests. The FDA has declared that added oversight of LDTs is needed and that the agency plans to issue a guidance document on this. Hence, the issuance of the draft guidance is also set to hinder the growth of the NGS based molecular diagnostics market. Furthermore, owing to the rapid mutation of microbes and the increasing outbreak of epidemics, clinical laboratories need to adopt innovative technologies capable of timely sample diagnosis. Hence, all laboratories and setups must be well-versed with the techniques to begin practice. The reluctance to move from manual operations towards automation is another challenge for NGS based molecular diagnostic market growth. Thus, the shortage of skilled, well-trained, and technically knowledgeable laboratory technicians to operate advanced NGS based molecular diagnostic products is limiting their overall adoption, particularly in emerging markets.
