In 2009, a group of qPCR experts published the Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments (MIQE) guidelines for reproducible experiments. Those guidelines shaped present-day qPCR, which is considered a gold standard technique in molecular biology. Fast forward to 2013, dPCR also took advantage of the publication of the Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Digital PCR Experiments (dMIQE) guidelines to ensure global standardization. A new version of the dMIQE guidelines was published in 2020, considering the increasing number of applications and the introduction of new platforms. 

To democratize this guideline and the use of this powerful technology, we are answering three critical questions through this webinar:

  • Why do we need such guidelines?
  • What are these guidelines?
  • How are these guidelines revolutionizing dPCR experiments?
