In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) include reagents, instruments, and systems intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, including the determination of the state of health, in order to treat or prevent disease. The reagents, instruments and systems are intended for use in the collection, preparation, and examination of specimens taken from the human body. The categories tracked under this market are Cardiac Disease, Hematological Disorders, Hormonal Disorders, Metabolic Disorder, Infectious Disease, IVD Analyzers and Reagents, Oncology and Reproductive Health Diagnostics. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Systems are instruments used to perform nucleic acid amplification, typically in support of investigations concerning the diagnosis or prognosis of cancer or infectious disease.

The Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a method used to amplify and analyze short DNA (or RNA) sequences in a sample with small quantities of RNA or DNA, through repeated heating and cooling of nucleic acids, combined with recombinant enzymes, to mimic the natural process used in cells to repair DNA. PCR amplifies the selected sequence of DNA segment producing millions of copies within a few hours. Quantitative PCR (qPCR) is a modification of the technique that allows measurement of the amplified RNA or DNA. The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Systems tracks the essential equipment only, and not accessories and/or additional costs associated with PCR System installation. It includes the sub-segments Semi Automated qPCR Systems, Automated qPCR Systems, and Digital PCR Systems.
Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the pcr systems devices market within South Africa was expected to be over $10m in 2022.
