Maximize PCR success

Maximizing PCR success with the right PCR technology

The reproducibility issue
a growing concern affecting many scientists​

Publication of reliable and reproducible studies sets the foundation for future scientific endeavors to build upon. However, many scientists cannot reproduce their peers’ results and sometimes even their own results. This irreproducibility crisis wastes valuable time and resources and can damage scientific credibility. Fortunately, you can help tackle the issue and promote high-quality science by using standardized PCR methods.

Performing cell line development?

Data robustness and reproducibility are critical in cell engineering applications. Learn how you can improve and accelerate your CRISPR clone selection and cell line characterization workflow.

End-point PCR

Today’s research applications require more from PCR: increased throughput, higher sensitivity and reliable data analysis. Although it is one of the most commonly used lab methods, many researchers still worry about the complexity of designing PCR experiments. QIAGEN’s end-point PCR solutions remove your worries because we’ve built them to get every PCR job done correctly – the first time.

Digital PCR

Prepare your critical research applications for a digital future. Digital PCR is a highly precise approach to absolute nucleic acid quantification without standard curves. It is ideal for identifying faint genetic signals against a strong background, as needed in sensitive applications like rare mutation detection. Our fully integrated nanoplate-based dPCR system combines superior partitioning with the ease of use of qPCR. It offers several advantages over qPCR, such as improved precision and accuracy, increased resistance to inhibitors and high reproducibility.
