Product News: Bio-Rad to Unveil New Solutions for Streamlined Long Noncoding RNA (lncRNA) Research at AACR 2019

Innovative workflow promises highly sensitive detection of lncRNAs by qPCR and ddPCR to help researchers “overcome challenges associated with lncRNA expression analysis”

21 Mar 2019


As part of a host of activities at next week’s 2019 AACR Annual Meeting in Atlanta, USA, Bio-Rad will be launching an innovative new workflow offering highly sensitive detection of lncRNAs by RT-qPCR.

As well as highlighting the benefits of its digital PCR technology for liquid biopsy analysis, it will showcase a range of other products at its booth #2627, including antibodies, Bio-Plex Multiplex Immunoassays, its ZE5 Cell Analyzer, ddSEQ Single-Cell Isolator and Stain-Free Western Workflow

There will also be a host of informative and educational events on offer from the Bio-Rad team, including its spotlight presentation, Droplet Resolution Allows for Quantitative Assessment and Monitoring of Cancer, which takes place on Tuesday, April 2, 12.30–1.30pm at the Exhibitor Spotlight, Theater B — with lunch provided.

Among 50 or so Bio-Rad customer research poster presentations in areas ranging from drug resistance and CAR-T to molecular diagnosis and genomic analysis, are:

  • Analysis of glypican 3-targeted chimeric antigen receptor T cells in hepatocellular carcinoma cell and mouse models, with Dan Li, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda (Section 22, Poster #10 - Monday, April 1, 1–5pm)
  • Is a single driver gene mutation sufficient for monitoring early response in advanced colorectal cancer? with Pashalina Kehagias, Institut Jules Bordet, Brussels (Section 20, Poster #22 - Monday, April 1, 1–5pm)
  • Analysis of nucleosomal DNA as an extraction control for plasma-based circulating tumor DNA assays with David Polsky, New York Univ. School of Medicine, New York (Section 18, Poster #28 - Monday, April 1, 2019, 1:00–5:00 PM)

Stop by the Bio-Rad booth and you’ll also be offered the chance to win a book on Digital PCR Methods and Protocols.
