Innovation in Digital PCR: Maximizing Data Output from Precious Samples

GenomeWebinar

Research Assistant,
National Institute of Biology

Director of Molecular Biology R&D,
Stilla Technologies

The commercialization of digital PCR platforms has sparked a revolution in quantitative nucleic acid detection over the past decade. Stilla Technologies’ Naica System, an established easy-to-use digital PCR platform, offers an innovative solution that quantifies in three colors while minimizing time to results.  

This webinar will present the features of the company’s new 6-color Crystal Digital PCR System and highlight a set of applications poised to greatly benefit from the increased multiplexing and high sensitivity of 6-color digital PCR. 

First, Alexandra Bogozalec from the National Institute of Biology in Slovenia will detail how her team has capitalized on the high-plex capacity of 6-color Crystal Digital PCR to simplify the time-consuming GMO quantification workflow and simultaneously quantify a set of genetically modified soybean lines at low target concentrations.  

This webinar will also discuss how the highly sensitive detection capability of 6-color Crystal Digital PCR benefits oncology applications. Allison Mallory of Stilla Technologies will present high-plex mutation detection in non-small cell lung cancer, colorectal and breast cancer samples and will show how 6-color digital PCR enables efficient therapeutic monitoring and early detection of treatment resistance through noninvasive liquid biopsy.
