The QX200 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) System from Bio-Rad provides absolute quantification of nucleic acids. It is particularly useful for detection of targets in complex backgrounds or for monitoring subtle changes or low nucleic acid abundance not easily detected/quantified with traditional qPCR.

Based on water-emulsion droplet technology, the system fractionates a DNA sample in 20,000 droplets. PCR amplification of the template subsequently occurs in each individual droplet, and counting the positive droplets gives precise, absolute target quantification.

The product covers a range of applications including copy number variation, rare mutation detection and liquid biopsy for research and now clinical diagnostics. Scientists are also investigating new application uses in genome editing detection, pathogen detection and quantification, environmental monitoring and more.

In conjunction with the instrumentation, Bio-Rad offers digital PCR assays that were designed by experts in the digital biology field. Every assay has been experimentally validated to ensure optimal performance for its target application and feature precision and sensitivity in providing an absolute measure of target DNA molecules.
