Bio-Rad Real-Time PCR Workshop Coming to Your Neighborhood

The tech note that was written last year entitled: “A practical approach to RT-qPCR- Publishing data that conform to the MIQE guidelines” by Sean Taylor, Michael Wakem, Greg Dijkman, Marwan Alsarraj and Marie Nguyen has been published in Methods (2010 Apr;50(4):S1-5.).

Taylor S, Wakem M, Dijkman G, Alsarraj M, & Nguyen M (2010). A practical approach to RT-qPCR-Publishing data that conform to the MIQE guidelines. Methods (San Diego, Calif.), 50 (4) PMID: 20215014

To support the MIQE Guidelines and best practices for qPCR experiments, Bio-Rad has initiated a half-day qPCR workshop to:

1. Analyze your own RNA samples to assure that they are of appropriate quality and purity for qPCR.
2. Demonstrate the importance of accurate pipetting, good technique and quality reagents with a pipetting competition (prizes will be awarded!).
3. Teach you how to design a solid experimental approach for excellent results that conform to the recently published MIQE guidelines (Bustin et al. 2009; Taylor et al. 2010).
