Bio-Rad

Bio-Rad scientist Jennifer Berman explains how ddPCR can help detect the basic efficiency of CRISPR/Cas9 and other genome editing technologies and more.

The researchers' proof-of-concept paper published in PLOS One demonstrated a method that could lead to more haplotype analysis in genomic studies of diseases.

The suit alleges Bio-Rad fired its former general counsel for pursuing an investigation into bribery committed by the company's employees and agents in China. 

Both groups are making their detailed protocols available to researchers online.

Low-pass sequencing and digital PCR analysis of cell-free circulating tumor DNA could detect metastatic disease in primary breast cancer patients months before clinical diagnosis.

On a currency-neutral basis, quarterly revenues increased about 1 percent compared to the same quarter last year.

10X Genomics' GemCode platform

Several early-access customers presented results from the 10X technology at the meeting.

Bio-Rad reported $598.2 million in revenues for the quarter, down from $602.6 million a year ago but surpassing the average analysts' estimate of $593.4 million.

The research may prove relevant to understanding human diversity as well as the genetic underpinning of certain CNV-related disorders.

An increasing number of publications using droplet-based digital PCR platforms suggests acceptance and uptake of the technology.
