qPCR & Digital PCR Congress

Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2nd qPCR & Digital PCR Congress, which will be held on October 20-21 in London, United Kingdom.

Bringing together over 200 industry & 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 diagnosis, diagnostic & clinical applications, microbiology, food microbiology, plant/ecology genomics 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 $1.9 billion by 2015, 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 40 strong speaker faculty examining topics on four separate tracks covering:

Day One Stream One – Digital PCR: Applications & Opportunities
Day One Stream Two – qPCR: Strategies & Developments
Day Two Stream One – qPCR & Digital PCR Case Studies
Day Two Stream Two – Plant & Food Case Studies


A brand new satellite training course has been added to the agenda.

Taught by the world renowned qPCR course provider TATAA Biocenter, this added training "MIQE- How to get good quality control in qPCR" will be held on the 2 days following the main congress.
