8th qPCR & Digital PCR Congress

EXPLORING ADVANCES IN TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH WITH QPCR, DPCR

 

The commercialization of digital PCR platforms sparked a revolution in nucleic acid quantification over the past decade, shaking up the world of real-time qPCR. Although Digital PCR overcomes the difficulties of conventional PCR, it is essential to further understand the advantages & disadvantages compared to real-time qPCR.

There is also an urgent need to stimulate efforts towards more reproducible, sensitive, truly quantitative and ultimately, more biologically valid experimental approaches. The challenge, therefore, is to develop assays that meet current analytical requirements and anticipate new problems.

The 2020 meeting focussed on the underlying statistics of Digital PCR such as developing optimal workflow, gaining the highest sensitivity and authentic results, whilst discussing the continued evolution of qPCR. It was packed with insights on how Digital PCR is evolving particular techniques and possible applications from research to the clinic.

The meeting was also co-located with the 2nd Flow Cytometry Congress and the 2nd Liquid Biopsies Congress. Attendees had full access to all three meetings.
