Did You Know That Beyond Sensitivity, ddPCR Provides Unrivaled Precision and Accuracy?

Methods that are highly accurate and precise provide the right answer, consistently. For digital PCR (dPCR), Poisson statistics dictate that the accuracy and precision of results are dependent on the accuracy and precision of sample partitions. This means that to get reliable dPCR results, you need to know your partition volume accurately and your partition volumes need to be consistent. See how our Droplet Digital PCR technology provides both accuracy and precision.
