In general, viral diagnostic tests can be grouped into three areas, namely, direct detection, indirect examination following virus isolation, and serology. Direct methods generally test for virus particles, virus antigen or viral nucleic acids, while indirect approaches involve culture and isolation. Historically, serology has been the mainstay of activities in the virology laboratory, where antibody titre methods are important. However, the last decade has seen increasing use of direct tests, notably with the evolution of molecular methods, which is the subject of the current study. This report presents the findings from a new market study of viral molecular diagnostics, and gives commercial insights to suppliers in this field. 

Market studies carried out by Biopharm Reports are designed to assist laboratory suppliers to profile current and evolving market opportunities. All of our studies are carried out through specialist groups of experienced researchers and clinicians, and therefore findings are based on 'real world' market data. By providing new insights and a better understanding of end-user needs, our studies assist suppliers to sell into these markets, and support innovation, development and strategic planning. 

Viral Molecular Diagnostics 2014 involved the participation of 313 experienced clinicians and research scientists and profiled current practices, developments, trends and future plans over the next three years, as well as growth, shrinkage and opportunities across key areas of this market. Its findings provide suppliers with market information on the current and evolving use of viral molecular diagnostics.
