Mediator Probe PCR

Mediator Probe PCR

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…

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…
