Overcoming Challenges in the Real-Time PCR Workflow - A Practical Troubleshooting Guide
04 Oct 2018

RT-PCR, reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction, is a standard method in research laboratories, and remains one of the most sensitive techniques in functional genomics. The real-time element provided by this technology, however, poses endless possibilities for operator errors and mistakes to occur. Common challenges faced include assay design, template preparation and reporting or interpretation of real-time data.

In this expert webinar, RT-PCR expert Melanie Jahn will deliver a troubleshooting guide for some of the most common hurdles encountered during the workflow, offering expert advice and tips on how to overcome them.

In the Q&A session, you can ask your own troubleshooting questions and have Jahn answer them live.

This webinar will cover the real-time PCR workflow from start to finish, delivering the following learning objectives:

  • Understand how the entire real-time PCR workflow can be improved — from assay design, sample treatment and purification, to RT, qPCR and data evaluation
  • Recognize the new PCR technologies which can help overcome these common troubles and challenges during the workflow


  • Who should attend?

    Lab scientists, lab technicians and lab managers working with real-time PCR on a regular basis.
