Digital PCR

The Bio-Rad QX200 droplet digital PCR system allows for DNA quantification using limiting dilutions of the target DNA in up to 20,000 sub-nanoliter droplets. The instrument uses Taqman assays with two color detection (FAM and VIC/HEX) on a single sample or Evagreen assays using only a pair of PCR primers.
