Relive the experienceThe QIAGEN PCR Festival 2021 opened its virtual doors and welcomed enthusiasts and experts worldwide for a week-long celebration of all things PCR. Missed our live sessions? Don't worry! You can still catch the replays and discover the best talks at your convenience.
How oysters led to COVID-19 testingA major issue in managing the pandemic is to have a reliable and early warning of outbreaks. I.A.G.E., a French startup specializing in environmental biological analyses, has used the new dPCR technology to confirm cases in the most vulnerable communities. And their story started with oysters.
Identifying the genetics behind obesityDr. Johanna Andersson-Assarsson uses digital PCR technology to examine how copy numbers in a single gene may explain why some people are prone to one of the world’s most complex diseases.
Standardized molecular measurements from London to ShanghaiDigital PCR is an exact science that may hold the answer to global standardization in molecular measurements. In diagnostics, this can open the door to a whole new level of patient care.
