What is the difference between Positive PCR Control (PPC) and Microbial DNA Positive Control?
FAQ ID — 3397

Positive PCR Control (PPC) is used to test for the presence of inhibitors in the sample or the efficiency of the polymerase chain reaction itself using a pre-dispensed artificial DNA sequence and the primer set that detects it. Microbial DNA Positive Control is a mixture of synthetic oligonucleotides that are targets for each primer/hydrolysis probe set. It is used to test that each Microbial DNA qPCR Assay is performing correctly.
