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.
