Live Cell RNA Detection

24 April 2013

In this video Don Weldon tells SelectScience about the new SmartFlare RNA Detection Probes from EMD Millipore. Don explains how live cell RNA detection is now possible, in a single incubation step using inert nanoparticle technology to specifically detect native RNA. He discusses some of the key benefits of this approach compared to existing techniques, such as real-time PCR and demonstrates how the technology works. Interview filmed by SelectScience at AACR 2013.
