Bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasitic metazoans are ubiquitous in the environment and are part of all aspects of human life. This makes the detection and monitoring of microbes important to understand their biological functions. To get the most out of microbiome samples, their preparation and analysis requires optimal workflows and efficient sequencing technologies. This webinar series over five days helps you get to the bottom of your microbiome sample with insightful background knowledge and useful tips and tricks.

Day 3: Detecting pathogens with digital PCR

Pathogen detection using the new dPCR Microbial DNA Detection Assays on the QIAcuity

Detecting and monitoring microbial pathogens, their antibiotic resistance and virulence genes from diverse samples is highly important to combat them. DNA-based methods, like hydrolysis probe-based assays, digital PCR and the novel dPCR Microbial DNA Detection Assays, enable their rapid profiling and identification and will be the focus of this webinar.

About the speaker
Ronny Kellner, Ph.D., R&D Senior Scientist, dPCR
Dr. Ronny Kellner is an R&D Senior Scientist working on digital PCR assay development at QIAGEN, Hilden, Germany. He completed his Ph.D. in molecular plant-pathogen interaction at the MPI for Terrestrial Microbiology in Marburg and the Ruhr-University of Bochum, Germany. After several international projects in Germany and the UK focusing on microbiology, molecular biology and NGS data analysis, he joined QIAGEN in August 2020. Since then, he has been developing the digital PCR assay portfolio, including applications for pathogen detection.
