					       Molecular Diagnostics in Cancer Testing

 Molecular diagnostics is a rapidly-advancing area of research and medicine, with new technologies
     and applications being continually added. The technologies that come under the umbrella of
     molecular diagnostics include first-generation amplification, DNA probes, fluorescent in-situ
hybridization (FISH), second-generation biochips and microfluidics, next-generation signal detection,
       biosensors and molecular labels, and gene expression profiling using microarrays. These
     technologies are improving the discovery of therapeutic molecules for cancer, the screening,
 diagnosis and classification of cancer patients, and the optimization of drug therapy. This Company
 Publications report describes the specific segment of the in vitro diagnostics (IVD) market known as
 molecular diagnostics (MD), with a specialization in the MD tests for cancer. In the current medical
   diagnostics market, molecular diagnostics for cancer testing offers one of the brightest areas for
      growth and innovation. The confluence of breakthroughs in genomics, proteomics, and the
 development of microarray devices to measure analytes in the blood and various body tissues, has
  led to this revolutionary market segment offering the power of advanced analytical techniques to
   the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This report analyzes the size and growth of the molecular
  diagnostics market in its applications for cancer detection and therapy, examining the factors that
influence the various market segments and the dollar volume of sales, both in the United States and
