Please join us for a digital PCR (dPCR) seminar and learn about the Applied Biosystems™ QuantStudio™ Absolute Q™ Digital PCR System. This seminar will cover dPCR basics, differences between dPCR and real-time PCR (qPCR), applications such as rare-target detection and quantitative experiments, and an overview of the QuantStudio Absolute Q dPCR system. There will be opportunities to ask questions.
Following this event, we will provide a demonstration of the Absolute Q dPCR system in the genomics core.
Digital PCR is a nucleic acid quantification technique that allows absolute quantification without the need for standard curves. The QuantStudio Absolute Q Digital PCR System integrates all the necessary steps for dPCR—digitization, thermal cycling, and data acquisition—into a single instrument. Simply pipette the reaction mixture into the microfluidic array plate (MAP) as you would for qPCR, and the platform will take care of the rest.At this seminar, we will answer these questions:
- What is dPCR?
- How does dPCR compare to qPCR?
- How does the QuantStudio Absolute Q dPCR system work?
- What are the benefits of using dPCR for quantitative experiments?
