DEVELOPMENTS & POTENTIAL OF qPCR & dPCR AS A TOOL FOR PROGRESSING MOLECULAR BIOLOGY RESEARCH AND TESTING

Global Engage is pleased to announce the return of the American leg of our successful qPCR & Digital PCR series, which will be co-located with our Microfluidics Congress in Philadelphia, PA on July 11-12 2016.  This year has some exciting new topics and areas of interest so please see the detail below.

Bringing together over 175 industry and academic experts working in areas such as molecular biology/diagnostics, gene expression, genomics, biomarkers, pathogen detection, GMO, mRNA, NGS, bioinformatics and data management, the congress will examine the latest developments, opportunities and applications of both dPCR and qPCR through case studies across diverse areas such as oncology, infectious diseases, vaccines, prenatal diagnostics, clinical applications, microbiology, food microbiology, environmental testing and other novel applications.



With increasing numbers of real-time PCR users purchasing digital PCR due to its reduction in cost, absolute quantification, improved sensitivity, precision and greater robustness; and with the gene amplification market predicted to grow to $2.2 billion by 2017, this conference provides a timely opportunity to learn first-hand about dPCR whilst also keeping up to date with latest developments and strategies in qPCR.

The conference will provide an interactive networking forum to both further develop and answer your queries through a vibrant exhibition room full of technology providers showcasing their technologies and other solutions, poster presentation sessions, expert led case study presentations and interactive Q&A panel discussions from a 50 strong speaker faculty examining topics on five separate tracks covering:

Day One, Stream One
–  Digital PCR: Possibilities & Opportunities
Day One, Stream Two
–  qPCR: Strategies & Developments
Day Two, Stream One
–  Healthcare Case Studies
Day One and Two
–  Plant, Food and Environment Case Studies
