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.”

LabTube.TV “Microvesicle (exosome) RNA as Biomarkers for Disease” by Johan Skog

To develop a clinical test using microvesicle RNA, isolation of exosomes in a robust way that is easy, scalable, reproducible and allows for high-throughput processing in a clinical setting is critical. The RNA needs to be of high quality with markers that allow quality assessment of clinical samples. The use of exosomes is a great platform that enables longitudinal monitoring of a variety of mutations and transcript levels in tumors using qPCR, NGS and digital PCR.
