The Genome Analysis and Technology Core is currently establishing new digital PCR services supported by the Qiagen QIAcuity instrument. This instrument is offered as a shared instrument operated by trained users at this time. Please contact Alyson Prorock to set up a training time. Please also view this instructional video provided by QIAgen:
Please see our most recent presentation:
The QIAcuity Digital PCR System is a nanoplate-based system which integrates a standard dPCR workflow of partitioning, thermocycling and imaging into a walk-away automated platform with minimal hands-on time.
Often times the user is able to adapt current qPCR assays to the QIAcuity Digital PCR System for quick results in under 2 hours.
The QIAcuity Digital PCR System will deliver precise and multiplexed quantification results for all molecular applications including but not limited to the following areas:
- Rare mutation detection
- Copy number variation analysis
- Gene expression analysis
- NGS library quantification
- Pathogen detection
- miRNA research
