Quantitative PCR (qPCR) is one of the most widely used tools in genomics. It is so powerful and user-friendly that researchers tend to over rely on it. Every technique has its limitations, and qPCR is no exception. There are situations where a more refined PCR technique such as Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) could yield superior results. In this webinar brought to you by Bio-Rad, Jörg Bantin and Eddy van Collenburg will discuss when ddPCR should be used instead of qPCR and how to ease the transition.

Topics to be covered

  • The seamless shift from qPCR to ddPCR
  • Applications where qPCR is not good enough
  • The brave new world of ddPCR applications
