Webinar highlights – Maximizing miRNA-seq success from liquid biopsy samples

Development of markers that facilitate earlier and non-invasive diagnosis is a primary goal of disease research. This is where microRNAs come in. Studies have indicated that the expression levels of these non-coding RNA molecules are altered in disease states, including cancer and neurodegeneration. Evidence of their presence in biofluids means that their potential as important… Read article →

The plasmid purification journey – revisited!

In a previous post, my colleague Laura Mohr dazzled you with her QIAGEN time machine story. She took you on a ride through 30 years of our plasmid prep innovations that paved the way life science research is done globally. Plasmid purification still continues to be a crucial starting point for research in several labs,… Read article →

Live webinar! The importance of controls and novel solutions for successful real-time qPCR

Reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) is one of the most widely used methods for gene quantification today because it offers numerous advantages. High sensitivity, accuracy, speed and specificity are the key benefits that have made it a gold standard for gene expression analysis. However, a number of critical factors are involved during the various steps… Read article →
