Using digital PCR to study the skin microbiome
Research into the skin microbiome, especially how cosmetics can affect the microbiome to provide benefits for the consumer, can be very complex. In vivo studies are often required, with precision as a crucial factor in identifying and quantifying species successfully. Digital PCR is emerging as a promising method for amplifying precision and simplifying lab protocols. In this webinar, the Skin Microbiome Specialist for Natura Cosmetics, Joice Savietto, presents how the digital PCR technique is being implemented at the company to obtain safe and efficient products.
