5th qPCR & Digital PCR Congress

DEVELOPMENTS & POTENTIAL OF qPCR & dPCR AS A TOOL FOR PROGRESSING MOLECULAR BIOLOGY RESEARCH AND TESTING

The 4th qPCR & Digital PCR Congress took place on 20 – 21 October in London.  Once again it was co-located with the 3rd Synthetic Biology Congress and the 2nd Microfluidics Congress.  Speakers included:

Synopsis

Details from our 2016 meeting

Bringing together over 350 industry and academic experts working in areas such as molecular biology/diagnostics, gene expression, genomics, biomarkers, pathogen detection, GMO, mRNA, NGS, bioinformatics and data management, the congressexamined the latest developments, opportunities and applications of both dPCR and qPCR through case studies across diverse areas such as oncology, virology, infectious diseases, vaccines, prenatal diagnosis, clinical applications, microbiology, food microbiology, plant genetics, environmental testing and other novel applications.

With increasing numbers of real-time PCR users purchasing digital PCR due to the reduction in its cost, absolute quantification, improved sensitivity, precision and greater robustness; and with the gene amplification market predicted to grow to $2.2 billion by 2017, this conference provided a timely opportunity to learn first-hand about applications and guidelines in dPCR, whilst also keeping up to date with latest developments and strategies in qPCR.

The conference included an interactive networking forum to further develop and answer your queries through a vibrant exhibition room full of technology providers showcasing their technologies and other solutions, poster presentation sessions, expert led case study presentations and interactive Q&A sessions from a 50-strong speaker faculty examining topics on five separate tracks.

Digital PCR: Applications & Possibilities

Understanding the benefits and future development of dPCR, comparing dPCR to qPCR and other technologies such as NGS, strategies to convert to a dPCR platform and applying the technology to precision medicine.

qPCR: Strategies & Developments

Advances in qPCR methods, including assay design, sample preparation and quality control, multiplexing and parallel sequencing. The MIQE guidelines and standardisation are also explored.

Read More
Healthcare Case Studies

qPCR and dPCR applied to oncology, neurology, prenatal diagnostics and infectious diseases. As well as gene expression and synthesis, biomarker discovery and mRNA/ncRNA/siRNA.

Read More
Plant, Food and Environment Case Studies

Case studies reviewing the application of qPCR and dPCR to plant, food and environmental analysis. This includes testing water for contamination, plant and food pathogen detection and GMO quantification.

Testimonials

WHAT OUR DELEGATES SAY ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Good buzz

It is a well organised and well attended conference. There’s a lot of buzz and people are interested in the topics and the discussions.

Stephen Bustin

Professor of Molecular Medicine, Anglia Ruskin University, UK

Proper qPCR conference

There’s actually very few proper qPCR conferences left now, so it was too good an opportunity to miss.

David Hughes

UK Sales Manager, Integrated DNA Technologies

 

Mix of attendees

It’s a good mixture of people with a broad background of knowledge and interest.

Anders Ståhlberg

Associate Professor, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

Growing conference

We decided to come to the qPCR and dPCR congress because we were at the meeting last year. This event is even bigger than last year and we’ve been very pleased with the interaction with the delegates here and also the focus on digital PCR which is a core part of our technology.
