GENEWIZ WEEK 2023 WORKSHOP
How Does It All Add Up? Quantitative PCR (qPCR) Vs. Digital PCR (dPCR)
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Many researchers rely on qPCR for various applications; its low cost and established workflows make it an attractive assay for the quantification and detection of nucleic acids. As qPCR technology becomes more widely used, however, its limitations become more evident. dPCR offers higher precision, a lower limit of detection, and a unique workflow that expands the capabilities of its predecessor, taking PCR technology into a new era.
Our team will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each method, focusing on applications where dPCR excels. Following the presentation, GENEWIZ experts will discuss transitioning from qPCR to dPCR and answer any questions you may have during the roundtable discussion.
