Join us in exploring the most watched Bio-Rad videos this year. From understanding CRISPR gene editing to generating better qPCR data to selecting antibodies for fluorescent western blotting, these videos showcase the extraordinary work that Bio-Rad continues to do in helping our customers do better science and stay on the cutting edge of life science research and technology.

How to Generate Better qPCR Data

Most qPCR analysis software is limited. To fully analyze and graph your data, you need to export results to a spreadsheet or another program. So Bio-Rad built CFX Maestro Software — its data collection, data analysis, statistics, and publication-ready graphing capabilities provide one easy to use, time-saving tool.
