Certified Service Provider Program
Our Certified Service Provider Program enables participating laboratories to perform selected analyses using Bio-Rad instruments and reagents with methods approved for specific applications by our scientists.
Our network of Certified Service Providers allows any lab to access high-quality, validated analyses using our proprietary technology.
Certified Service Providers for Droplet Digital™ PCR
Bio-Rad’s Droplet Digital PCR Systems enable exquisitely precise, ultrasensitive quantification of nucleic acids in a variety of sample types without the use of a standard curve. Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) assays are particularly useful for low-abundance targets, targets in complex backgrounds, allelic variants (SNPs), and for monitoring subtle changes in target levels that cannot be detected with real-time PCR.
Three types of services are offered by our ddPCR Certified Service Providers:
- Rare event detection
- Copy number variation analysis
- Absolute quantification
The Certified Service Provider network also allows researchers to evaluate the quality of results from Droplet Digital PCR Systems with their own samples, offering an ideal, low-risk option for assessing the value of ddPCR assays in their research before investing in a QX200 System for their own lab.
