Quantification of human DNA in a test sample will help forensic testing facilities to create DNA profiles successfully. It approves that the test sample consists of adequate human DNA for further biological testing, creates whether it consists of inhibitors, and forecasts the success of the sample’s STR analyses. There are many manufacturing company’s quantification assays which provide compassion, speed, and accuracy in the critical step of human identification and forensic testing. 

The DNA quantification assay contains two 5′ nuclease assays, one among them is a target-specific human DNA assay and the other is an internal PCR control assay. The TSA for human DNA quantification comprises of two 5′ primers, a forward and reverse primer, and one TaqMan minor groove binder probe. The probe end of 5’ is linked to dye FAM to detect the amplified sequence. VIC dye is replaced in the IPC assay as the reporter dye. The internal PCR control sequence is unreal. The 3′ probe end of 3’ for both the assays consists the non-fluorescent quencher along with the minor groove binder.

The different characteristic regions are as mentioned:

  • Gene Target: Human Telomerase reverse transcriptase gene (hTERT)
  • Location: 5p15.33
  • Amplicon Length: 62 bases
  • Region Amplified: Nontranslated region (intron)
  • Single-copy diploid target

Degraded, inhibited, or varied DNA models are communal in forensic casework and other human testing applications. Those models can generate difficulties in STR analysis. Before quantification of the DNA with the use of real-time PCR which decreases the necessity of repeated downstream analyses. This significantly eases the costs and time, thus advances the statistical relevance of results. 

Human DNA Quantification Market: Dynamics 

Governmental agencies support by arranging sufficient funds, speedy industrial quantification method developments, and periodic national meetings and conferences related on how to use the new technologies in DNA outlining. Furthermore, numerous actions are being undertaken by U.S. administrative agencies to expand its national DNA databank, which would fuel the market for human DNA quantification market. Though, price attrition in genomics appliances and facilities is likely to hamper the market growth. Furthermore, the traditional instrumentation for detection of DNA can have a negative impact by technology integration. Apart from this, the established markets of the U.S. and Canada, and Europe, there exists strict government policies over the initiation of Human DNA Quantification policies. The approval procedure and introduction of new technical advancements in DNA sequencing are getting tougher for the manufacturing companies due to strict government regulations.

Human DNA Quantification Market: Region-wise Outlook

North America to emerge as the dominated region market for DNA quantification market due to increasing necessity to decrease time and cost of DNA examination. DNA quantification is an essential tool for public need, as it contribute to disease exposure and treatment response. The recent advantage for DNA quantification is its ability to distinguish a male donor in the presence of large excess of female DNA in combination models makes it a useful tool for the analysis of sexual assault cases. Among all the major regions North America dominates the DNA quantification market being the U.S. booming the major share of the market, followed by Asia is composed to grow at a normal pace when compared to North America,  due to funds provided by other nations to enhance the forensic and DNA outlining services. To the other side, dynamics such as occurrence of huge series of natural adversities and cognizance through forensics and DNA outlining related sessions are likely to deliver required incentive for the growth of this market.

Human DNA Quantification Market: Market Players

Some key players in the muscle stimulator market are Agilent Technologies, Bode Technology, GE Healthcare, Illumina, LGC Forensics, Orchid Cellmark, Inc, Promega Corporation, QIAGEN N.V, and Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. 

Larger companies with the business units in the human DNA quantification market are now concentrating on collaboration and partnerships with local manufacturers and suppliers so to tap into an untapped markets. The companies are also trying to launch new products into the market in order to materialized their brand and expand their customer base.
