Multiplex Super-Selective PCR Assays for the Detection and Quantitation of Rare Somatic Mutations

Professor Fred Kramer spoke at the recent Research & Technology Series exploring Flow Cytometry / qPCR & Digital PCR / Liquid Biopsies. During his presentation, he explained how Super Selective primers enable the simultaneous identification and quantitation of rare somatic mutations in routine multiplex PCR assays, while virtually eliminating signals from abundant closely related wild-type sequences.

Nucleic Acid Quantification, Mutation Enrichment Technologies & Streamlining Genotyping

In just two years’ time, the digital PCR and qPCR market is set to be worth an estimated $4.94 billion. Dedicated sessions at the 4BIO Summit covered topics such as gene expression analysis, liquid biopsies and high-throughput screening. We have made the following presentation slides from Hendrik Emons, Naomi Park & Mike Makrigiorgos available.

Systems-Level Insights into the Synthetic Biology Congress

The Molecular Biology Summit hosted three meetings in parallel: the qPCR and Digital PCR Congress, the Microfluidics Congress, and the Synthetic Biology Congress. Each meeting had talks organised into tracks which took place side-by-side. I attended the Synthetic Biology Congress, which also gave me access to the other two meetings.
