Infectious Disease

Why choose digital PCR for molecular diagnostics?

Digital PCR (dPCR) is a powerful tool for clinical testing and diagnostics of infectious diseases due to its high precision and sensitivity in nucleic acid detection. Unlike traditional PCR methods, dPCR enables the absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA by partitioning a sample into thousands of individual reactions, each representing a minute volume. This method enhances the detection of low-abundance pathogens and provides accurate quantification even in the presence of inhibitors. Learn more about the advantages:

Improving care for transplant recipients

Immunocompromised transplant patients are highly susceptible to post-op infections. What can you do when viral load assays don't give you a complete diagnostic picture of your patient's immune response?

QuantiFERON transplant assays provide a complementary approach – helping you assess the risk of infection and guide your patient management.
