Great results and high amplification products.


Average Rating 4.7

Application Area:


This product service is fast and reliable. I got training from one of the representatives for this system recently. I am pleased that we bought digital droplet PCR system in our department because this can amplify from the samples which are very low and require high quality and quantity amplification.

Review Date: 10 Jan 2021 | Bio-Rad

Robust, accurate & reliable workhorse. An essential analytical tool for the lab.


Average Rating 4.3

Application Area:

High statistical reliability for PCR

This instrument was purchased for our analytical lab for the gene copy analysis of viral samples and other cell types. The customer service and technical service groups are fabulous. The results are robust and reliable. The run time for a 96-well plate (start to finish, excluding prep) will take from 7-10 hours. Though this is a longer run-time than qPCR, the results are more reliable and robust without the use of a standard curve. The equipment itself is a reliable workhorse.

Very useful to work with liquid biopsies.


Average Rating 4.3

Application Area:

Absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA molecules for ddPCR applications

The import of consumables for Mexico is limited, which delays obtaining results and running projects.

Molecular analysis & quantification of genome engineering events in plants

The QX200™ AutoDG™ Droplet Digital™ PCR System is an easy-to-use, highly intuitive and reliable tool for addressing various molecular genetic questions (SNP, CNV, Genome editing frequencies, Transcriptome analysis) with unprecedented accuracy, precision and reliability. The handling of the devices through the complete process convinces by it's simplicity and flexibility. Significant emphasis was put into the theoretical and practical training by BioRad representatives, making the user feeling comfortable and confident working initially with the system. The overall design is very convenient and combines applicability with smart solutions, like highly interactive touchscreen handling and light-based guidance in the system. Programming of experimental approaches is self-explanatory and follows an intuitive approach. Data evaluation allows various useful views and options to manually step in with output being displayed in a customized easy-to-understand way. Taken together, this system revolutionizes the analytical possibilities of scientists dealing with molecular biology. Both the performance of the device itself as well as the highly supportive and timely interaction with the customer support makes the QX200™ AutoDG™ Droplet Digital™ PCR System a perfect and strongly recommendable choice.

The QX200 AutoDG Droplet Digital PCR System simplifies the Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) workflow, reducing hands-on time and eliminating user-to-user variability. The AutoDG Instrument brings scalability and flexibility to Bio-Rad’s ddPCR technology, the most precise and sensitive digital PCR solution for the absolute quantification of target DNA molecules.

  • Eliminates user-to-user variability — creates more consistent droplet counts across users and plates, enabling you to fully exploit the precision of your ddPCR System
  • Minimizes hands-on time — takes less than 5 minutes to load the instrument, and droplet generation requires no supervision

Features of the QX200 AutoDG Droplet Digital PCR system AutoDG Instrument

  • Guides setup and loading with large, color touch-screen interface and LED lighting
  • Compatible with both the QX100™ and QX200™ Droplet Digital™ PCR Systems
  • Generates droplets for 96 ddPCR reactions in under 45 minutes
  • One AutoDG Instrument can supply 4–5 droplet readers continuously
  • HEPA-filtered enclosure reduces contamination and allows the system to be placed in any lab environment
  • User-definable plate layout with increments of 8 wells provides run-to-run flexibility

Droplet Digital PCR Technology

  • Flexible digital PCR chemistry — optimized for TaqMan Hydrolysis Probe and EvaGreen Assays
  • Droplet partitioning by the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR system reduces bias from amplification efficiency and PCR inhibitors
  • Convenient assay design — standard curves are not required
