Answering your questions about successful gene expression analysis by digital PCR

February 16, 2021

Performing a successful gene expression analysis on the QIAcuity Digital PCR System requires considering few parameters, including sample input, dilutions and proper controls. 

Webinar recap: Introduction to digital PCR on the QIAcuity

February 16, 2021

What are the fundamental aspects of performing a successful digital PCR (dPCR) assay on the QIAcuity instruments? That was the subject of a 2020 webinar featuring Dr. Andreas Missel, Director R&D at QIAGEN.
