UWBC Hybrid Bio-Tech Talk (October 20, 1:30-2:30PM): “Discover Powerfully Simple Digital PCR”

Guest Speaker: Chris Monjure (Sr. Technical Specialist, Digital PCR, Thermo Fisher Scientific)

Facilitator: Bridget Ladell, DNA Sequencing Special Projects Researcher

Digital PCR (dPCR) is a nucleic acid quantification technique that allows absolute
quantification without the need for standard curves. The Applied BiosystemsTM
QuantStudioTM Absolute QTM Digital PCR System integrates all the necessary steps for
dPCR—digitization, thermal cycling, and data acquisition—into a single instrument. Simply

pipette the reaction mixture into the microfluidic array plate (MAP) as you would for real-
time PCR, and the platform will take care of the rest.

Discover powerfully simple dPCR at this special event.

In person (UWBC Auditorium, 425 Henry Mall) – refreshments will be served – or via Zoom.
