Digital PCR at the Next Level: Users Find Many Applications for the QX100™ Droplet Digital™ PCR System
The QX100 Droplet Digital PCR system gives researchers an improvement in PCR precision and sensitivity. See how this innovative digital PCR system is enabling companies to create better products, improve workflow efficiencies, and validate results with greater accuracy than previous methods allowed.
Sangamo BioSciences, Inc., located in Richmond, California, is developing HIV therapeutics toward a functional cure using their proprietary zinc finger DNA-binding protein technology. Droplet digital PCR (ddPCR™) — or third generation PCR — offers a superior solution as it can detect target sequence within a single molecule, making it a powerful technology for low copy event detection.
A Simple Method for Obtaining Absolute Quantification of DNA Molecules Using the Innovative Droplet Digital™ PCR Technology
Droplet digital PCR is considered the third generation of PCR technology. This technology enables the quantification of absolute measure of target DNA molecules, rather than the relative measure obtained from real-time PCR. Absolute quantification is advantageous in several applications, such as measuring copy number variation, detecting rare sequences and mutations, and analyzing gene expression.
The one-step RT-ddPCR kit for probes creates a new paradigm for the precise quantitation of RNA by combining reverse transcription with Droplet Digital™ PCR (ddPCR™), providing an absolute measure of target RNA molecules with unrivaled precision and sensitivity
