More on Bio-Rad’s QX100 Droplet Digital PCR System

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 02-13-2012

The QX100 Droplet Digital PCR system from Bio-Rad Laboratories provides an absolute measure of target DNA molecules with unrivaled precision and accuracy. The QX100 system partitions each sample into 20,000 individual nanoliter-sized droplets. PCR-positive and PCR-negative droplets from every sample are then counted to provide absolute target quantification in digital form. The QX100 system provides a revolutionary approach to target DNA quantification.

The QX100™ ddPCR™ system lets you:

  • Detect rare target sequences with unmatched sensitivity for cancer and viral research
  • Measure small differences in target copy number variations (down to 1.2x differences)
  • Determine absolute gene expression levels without a standard curve or the ΔΔCq method
