According to GlobalData’s medical device pipeline database, 124 COVID-19 Singleplex Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs) devices are in various stages of development globally. GlobalData’s report provides an overview of the segment’s pipeline landscape and offers detailed analysis of its products. Buy the report here.

Of these devices, 102 are in active development, while the remaining 25 are in an inactive stage of development. There are 30 products in the early stages of development, and the remaining 71 are in the late stages of development.

NAAT involves amplification of specific nucleic acid sequences of SARS-CoV-2 virus by targeting specific nucleic acid sequences. NAAT exhibits better sensitivity in comparison to antigen identification methods. Multiple targets are used in PCR to detect the different types of SARS-Cov-2. One unit refers to one singleplex NAAT test.

Innovations in the medical devices sector are linked to the development of new approaches, processes, or technologies for treating, diagnosing, and managing disease in response to demand from healthcare for better patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

Based on an analysis of GlobalData’s Medical Intelligence Center pipeline product database, these actively developed COVID-19 Singleplex Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs) pipeline devices are all expected to be approved within the next ten years.

Currently, private organizations, public entities and institutions are working on the development of COVID-19 Singleplex Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs) devices. Overall, most of these COVID-19 Singleplex Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs) pipeline devices are being developed by private entities.

Key players involved in the active development of COVID-19 Singleplex Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs) include Eurofins Scientific, Novacyt, BIOTECON Diagnostics, Eurofins NTD, Co-Diagnostics, Aura Biotechnologies, Hangzhou Bigfish Bio-tech, Luminex, Qiagen and QuantuMDx Group.
