Filling in the Missing Pieces: Study Finds Causative Role for Uncontrolled Diabetes in Alzheimer’s Disease

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common chronic diseases, globally. The prevalence has risen from 4.7% of adults over 18 years of age in 1980 to 8.5% in 20141. Plagued by treatment non-compliance, it is estimated that approximately 50% of Type 2 Diabetics fail to achieve adequate glycemic control2. The positive association between diabetes… Read article →

Quantitative readout of multiplex PCR assays using synthetic templates

Have you ever thought about the precision required to get an accurate quantitative readout from a multiplex PCR assay? Multiplex PCR enables targeted, parallel amplification of multiple targets, and it comes with a significant set of challenges, including optimizing the PCR conditions to achieve precise, quantitative results across all target loci. All primers must function under the same reaction conditions, each primer… Read article →
