In a rapidly growing molecular diagnostics market, genetic testing represents a highly attractive segment. Genetic testing is a form of medical test that recognizes alteration in chromosomes, genes, or proteins. Most of the time, testing is used to find changes that are associated with inherited disorders. The results of a genetic test can confirm or rule out a suspected genetic condition or help determine a person’s chance of developing or passing on a genetic disorder. Several hundred genetic tests are currently in use, and more are being developed.
