Want a PCR method that gives you high sensitivity and is cost-effective? Then you might want to try Mediator Probe PCR. This method gives you sensitivity and limit of detection comparable to that of dual-labeled hydrolysis probes without the high cost. We all know how expensive small batch probe synthesis orders can be, especially when […]
MIQE what’s that? When writing dPCR materials and methods for a paper have you ever pondered what information you should include? This is where the MIQE guidelines will really help. Guidelines for minimum information required for publication of a digital PCR (dPCR) experiment were published by JF Huggett et al. in 2013. These were a […]
Digital PCR or Quantitative Real-Time PCR: Which Method Is Best for Your Quantitative PCR Application?
So you’re designing a new experiment that requires PCR quantification. You used to have only one method to choose from, but now you have two – Quantitative Real-Time PCR (qPCR) and Digital PCR (dPCR). Which one is right for your application? Both methods have good quantification, sensitivity and specificity for most applications. They are compatible […]
Digital PCR (dPCR) is a quantitative PCR method that provides a sensitive and reproducible way of measuring the amount of DNA or RNA present in a sample. This method is similar to qPCR in the reaction assembly components and amplification reaction, but differs in the way the sample target is measured. Digital PCR is a […]
