Studying genetic variations – when the differences aren’t so obvious…


Genotyping is an integral part of any research – whether you are studying cancer, neurodegenerative diseases or the microbiome. The process of running multiple Southern blots and taking days for analyzing the genetic makeup is now history, as technology has grown rapidly in the last decade. Some of the key genotyping techniques now available include:

These technologies enable the flexibility and accuracy needed to study multiple gene targets potentially responsible for a disease. But the key in taking advantage of these technologies lies in optimizing the correct workflow with the correct tools for study.

Integrated solutions to detect the smallest genetic differences

If the success of your disease or microbiology research depends on finding the smallest genetic differences, you’ll need a workflow that’s absolutely accurate and reliable. Whether you are using end-point PCR, real-time PCR or sequence-based detection methods – QIAGEN provides robust and accurate solutions for all three methods.
