In its first part, this workshop will provide an introduction to digital PCR including its principle, related statistics, methods for sample partitioning and commercially available digital PCR systems.
The second part of the workshop will treat technological innovations comprising the microfluidic integration of droplet generation as well as amplification and detection within one single cavity. Furthermore, strategies for the integration of digital sample to answer nucleic acid analysis will be discussed.
Thirdly, in a live lab we will demonstrate how digital nucleic acid amplification can be performed using standard laboratory devices only (i.e. mini-centrifuge, incubator, fluorescence reader), enabled by a novel microfluidic chip.
Head of Division of Microfluidic Platforms,
