Live qPCR webinar

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 →


A 3-part webinar series: Overcoming challenges in gDNA-based research, multiplex PCR and quality control

The quality of extracted genomic DNA (gDNA) is a critical factor in many downstream applications, such as real-time PCR or multiplex PCR. Successful extraction of gDNA from formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues remains a challenge. Therefore, it’s good to get back to the basics of sample purification, multiplex PCR and quality control in order to… Read article →


RNAs that make your heart beat

Love, life, health and vitality. All are connected through one symbol: the beating of a heart. Often we don’t notice the strength of this organ until it starts to beat fast enough in our chests that we can feel it. One of the most beautiful instances of a racing heart happens during social bonding and when we fall in… Read article →

Understanding tumor heterogeneity with gene expression analysis

Strategies to counter tumor heterogeneity are high on the wish list of oncologists and cancer researchers. Within a single tumor, cells can differ in size, proliferation rate and ability to metastasize. Most significantly for physicians and patients, they can also differ in their sensitivity to chemotherapy. How can we best understand and investigate this aspect… Read article →
