TATAA Biocenter Expands its Digital PCR offerings with Bio-Rad’s Droplet Digital PCR System
TATAA Biocenter, Europe´s leading provider of genomic services, is expanding its digital PCR offerings with Bio-Rad’s high-throughput QX200™ Droplet Digital™ PCR system (ddPCR™).
“Digital PCR is most important complement to qPCR and can be used for standardization, copy number variation, and rare mutation analysis,” said Dr. Mikael Kubista, founder and CEO of TATAA Biocenter. “We have previously adopted the OpenArray and BioMark digital PCR platforms from Life Technologies and Fluidigm, which offer simultaneous measurements of qPCR and highly specific and sensitive dPCR analysis; however, with Bio-Rad’s QX200 system we can now offer dPCR in high throughput, using a much larger number of partitions. This is major strengthening of our service and training offerings.”
