Digital PCR

Digital PCR Services

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:

QIAcuity Digital PCR System

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
  • Genotyping
  • miRNA research
