Click to ViewDroplet digital (dd-PCR) PCR machine including droplet generator, plate sealer, thermalcycler and droplet reader. The QX200 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCRâ„¢) System provides absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA molecules for EvaGreen or probe-based digital PCR applications.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewIn dd-PCR, sample is separated into a large number of partitions and the reaction is carried out in each partition individually. This separation allows a more reliable collection and sensitive measurement of nucleic acid amounts, compared to analogue PCR.

  User Instructions
Amplification of DNA in rare events detection or mutation studies and when the copy number of DNA is suboptimal for analogue PCR.As per user manual
