made accessible for new users with a focus on
the applications of the technique.
Real-time PCR can be a daunting field, with competing
technologies, sophisticated instruments and
expensive reagents, many new users of Real-time
be overwhelmed by the apparent complexity of the
technique. Yet underneath this, the technique is
both simple and powerful, and the technologies
involved turn out to be complimentary, not
This webinar provides a grounding in the basics
of how the different technologies work and their
relative advantages. Data interpretation, a
frequently confusing topic is also discussed, as
well as the applications of Real-time PCR and features
compared to other methods currently available.
From gene expression studies to pathogen
detection, the underlying principles are the
same – this seminar aims to allow users to
appreciate the capabilities of Real-time PCR and so to
see what questions Real-time PCR can answer in their
