Dr. Feng Pan
Real-time PCR, a powerful advancement of the PCR technique, quantitates the initial amount of a template with more specificity, sensitivity, and reproducibility than any other method. It has been widely used for gene expression, genotyping, pathogen detection, and many other applications. In this webinar, Dr. Pan presents ways to achieve optimal sensitivity and reproducibility with every assay, from single-target amplification using SYBR Green I to multiple-target amplification (multiplexing). Every laboratory can benefit by using these methods to achieve better results.
