Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction System

QuantStudio 3 RT-qPCR System, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Pcr 300

Real-time polymerase chain reaction is a sensitive technique for the detection and quantification of nucleic acids. In real-time qPCR, a DNA target is amplified by PCR and the amount of product is monitored during the reaction by measuring the fluorescence of dyes or probes. Fluorescent dyes that bind dsDNA or sequence-specific DNA probes labeled with a fluorescent reporter are used for detection. Real-time qPCR can be used to quantify the absolute amount of starting material or to compare the relative amounts of a target gene between different samples.
