PCR, dPCR and NGS
PCR workflowsLooking for (q)PCR solutions for analyzing gene expression (e.g. mRNA) and regulation (e.g. small and miRNA)? Here’s all you need from versatile kits to top-notch block cyclers.
dPCR workflowsWhen the lower limit of detection excludes standard real-time quantitative PCR as a viable solution, digital PCR makes it surprisingly easy to detect the single positive. Find all the knowledge you need about dPCR.
NGS workflowsThe power and advantages of next-generation sequencing (NGS) are available to RNA researchers as RNA-seq. Going beyond mRNA expression, new techniques improve results.
