Can you imagine better data on the newest technology?

Digital droplet PCR (ddPCR) is an improved approach to real-time PCR techniques offering developers robust readouts for their cell and gene therapies, oligonucleotides, or biomarkers. While qPCR may be considered the gold standard for measuring changes in gene expression and can micro-detect a single target molecule per reaction, there is a more effective technique. 

ddPCR Capability

The detection of ddPCR uses the same chemistries as real-time PCR, however, it allows for more sensitive readouts for development studies. Each partition is individually called as positive or negative based on fluorescent signal resulting in higher quality data and a decrease in variability. Our team offers deep expertise to develop and validate methods with ddPCR.
