Molecular Diagnostics

Emerging evidence has demonstrated that Molecular diagnostics is growing rapidly. Molecular diagnostic tests detect specific sequences in DNA or RNA that may or may not be associated with disease, including single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), deletions, rearrangements, insertions and others. Clinical applications can be found in at least six general areas: infectious diseases; oncology; pharmacogenomics; genetic disease screening; human leukocyte antigen typing; and coagulation.

A molecular test can deliver to a physician a result that is frequently considerably quicker than traditional approaches, with detailed information that can direct a highly tailored course of treatment. Owing to the extreme sensitivity of many molecular techniques, a less invasive sample collection is required for molecular analysis. The rapid development of automation and streamlining of molecular procedures has made molecular diagnostics a commercial option that more and more clinical labs are now bringing on board. Molecular diagnostic is today the fastest-growing segments in in-vitro diagnostics due to the improvements in turnaround time, the specificity of information derived from molecular approaches, the less invasive tissue collection, high through-put automation in instrumentation, and cost advantages.

Molecular diagnostics are unique from other tests in a clinical lab due to their complexity. Additional considerations in the quality of results obtained are:

  • The quality of testing outcomes is highly dependent on the monitoring of reagents, samples, instruments, and equipment used.
  • Genetic markers are extremely susceptible to damage and precautions must be taken to ensure the appropriate methods used to collect, process, store, and transport biological specimens.
  • Amplification techniques that molecular labs rely heavily on have such an extreme sensitivity that special precautions are required to avoid cross-contamination of sample or amplified DNA.
  • Automated high-throughput testing of molecular diagnostics makes each run expensive—making the adequate training of personnel, and the strict adherence to standard protocols a high stakes in molecular diagnostics.
