We bring together experts from across the world to discuss new and innovative applications of Droplet Digital PCR technology and how it is advancing and accelerating discovery. You can find out more about the Droplet Digital PCR systems here.
Development of a reference measurement method for quantification of human cytomegalovirus
Mojca Milavec - Research Councillor
October 15, 2020, 3:00 PM BST / 4:00 PM CET
In this webinar we’ll see how Human cytomegalovirus (hCMV) was used as a model organism to study the potential of qPCR and dPCR as reference methods for quantification of pathogens. What are the advantages of ddPCR vs qPCR performances in terms of sensitivity, repeatability, intermediate precision and reproducibility.
In-vivo monitoring of CAR-T cells using sensitive Droplet Digital PCR
Dr Boris Fehse, Head of Research Cell and Gene Therapy University Clinical Hospital Hamburg
June 1, 2020, 15:00 PM BST / 16:00 CEST
Dr Fehse talks us through his research about how ddPCR is excellently suited as a diagnostic tool to monitor infused cells in real-time in different body fluids.
Droplet Digital PCR: Improved detection of EGFR mutations in cell‑free plasma DNA from patients with non-small-cell lung cancer
Dr. Hochmair, PhD, Head of the Respiratory Oncology Unit - Otto Wagner Hospital Vienna
April 21, 2020, 3:00 pm GMT / 4:00 pm CET
In this webinar Dr Hochmair will show that ddPCR is highly sensitive, allows absolute quantification of mutations, and is clinically useful for the detection of EGFR mutations in cell-free plasma DNA and clinically relevant for selecting patients for osimertinib treatment
Accurate quantification of viral vectors for gene therapy by droplet digital PCR
Dr David Dobnik, PhD - Scientific Associate - National Institute of Biology
March 11, 2020, 3:30 pm GMT / 4:30 pm CET
In this webinar, we will present how quantification of AAVs is performed by droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) and how it can increase the accuracy of determined viral titers.
