A nice advancement in our capabilities.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cancer Research

"It allows for the detection of small variations/changes, which is very beneficial. Also, I find that the instrument helps analyze complex mixtures, better than the traditional q-PCRS. I am also less worried about buffer composition."

Great machine for nucleic acid quantification.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Absolute quantification of viruses

"Easy to use and robust enough that even a beginner can get the same results as an expert. Can be applied to various fields of application. If droplet reading was a bit faster the machine would be absolutely perfect."

Simple but efficient system
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Gene quant

"It provides an absolute count of target DNA copies per input sample without the need for standard curves which makes it easier to use compared to real-time PCR in which there may be variations due to reference gene amplification. Also simple and easy-to-use workflow with 96-sample throughput does not require multiple dilution steps. "

  • Application Area:We use it for two purposes: Genotyping (copy number) and gene expression

"So far, the droplet technology has been pretty straightforward to use and teach to others. It has thus far replicated several differential gene expression and copy number studies in our lab."

Use the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) system, the most precise and sensitive PCR solution, for absolute quantification of target DNA molecules.

Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) is Bio-Rad's unique digital PCR technology. With unrivaled precision, ddPCR provides absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA molecules without the use of standard curves. ddPCR addresses the lack of scalable and practical technologies for digital PCR implementation. The new QX200 ddPCR system puts this powerful technology in your hands, ready to unveil new worlds of research at previously unattainable levels.

Droplet Digital™ PCR system, includes droplet generator, droplet reader, laptop computer, software, associated component consumables, for EvaGreen or probe-based digital PCR applications.

The QX200 droplet generator is used to partition ddPCR reaction mix into 20,000 nanoliter-sized droplets. After PCR on a thermal cycler, droplets from each sample are analyzed individually on the QX200 droplet reader. Droplets are sipped and the singulator unpacks the emulsified droplets and streams them in single file past a two-color optical detection system in a serial manner. Up to 96 samples can be processed per run. The PCR-positive and PCR-negative droplets are counted to provide absolute quantification of target DNA in digital form. Alternatively, amplified products can be extracted from droplets following PCR for downstream applications, such as sequencing or cloning.
