By automating tasks and increasing precision, new liquid handling technologies serve to streamline workflows and free up the hands of researchers to focus on the important stuff – the science.
Understanding the strengths and limitations of real-time RT-PCR is essential for examining the current virus outbreak and for those that may emerge in the future.
Digital PCR or dPCR extends where qPCR falls short, namely in the accuracy and precision of absolute quantitation and the manner in which target DNA is measured. Here we explore details behind the application of this powerful technology.
With more than 4100 published studies (as of Oct 2019) and growing, nowhere is the power of Droplet Digital PCR technology further apparent than Bio-Rad’s expansive ddPCR Publications Database.
Harnessing the power of next generation sequencing technologies, in combined approaches, can improve the speed, accuracy, and quality of diagnostic results.
Sequencing methods have evolved to encompass high-throughput, high-resolution methods based on advanced capillary and microfluidic technologies.
We review popular technologies and the equipment involved, briefly discussing important aspects to keep in mind when optimizing the technique.
