    Abstract:
    DATE:   September 5, 2019
    TIME:    7:00am PT, 10:00am ET, 4:00pm CEST
     
    PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) has gone through a massive evolution since its development in 1983. Besides its age of 36 years it is still a core component of numerous complex applications. The PCR is the workhorse method in virtually every molecular biology laboratory and the gold standard in countless analytical assays.
     
    Despite its broad usage, there are several factors that need to be considered to design a successful PCR experiment. Starting from more apparent things like temperature settings and DNA template quality to less known factors as pipetting techniques and used consumables, this webinar covers multiple ways to improve your PCR. In addition, we will also take a closer look at the special requirements of qPCR as probably the most common used variant of traditional PCR.
     
    Learning Objectives:
    • Pain points and solutions of (q)PCR setup
    • Correct (q)PCR setup
    • Tips and tricks for (automated) pipetting of a PCR setup
     
     
    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
