"Droplet Digital PCR"

Droplet Digital PCR provides absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA without the need for a standard curve, providing orders of magnitude greater precision and sensitivity than real-time PCR. By partitioning reactions into droplets using the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR system, researchers can now:

  • Differentiate germline copy number variations (CNV)
  • Accurately quantify rare alleles in an excess of wildtype background DNA
  • Precisely quantitate nucleic acids
  • Analyze miRNA expression
  • Quantify single cell gene expression
  • Identify positive genome edited clones

See how the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR System enables exploration  of complex genetic landscapes, discovers and validates new disease associations, and redefines a new era of molecular research.
