qPCR & Digital PCR Congress

Following on from last year’s sell-out event, Global Engage is pleased to announce the 3rd qPCR & Digital PCR Congress, which will be held on October 20-21 in London, United Kingdom and co-located with the 2nd Synthetic Biology Congress and the Microfluidics Congress

Bringing together over 300 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, virology, infectious diseases, vaccines, prenatal diagnosis, 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 $2.2 billion by 2017, this conference provides a timely opportunity to learn first-hand about applications and guidelines in 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:
  • Digital PCR: Possibilities & Opportunities
  • qPCR: Strategies & Developments
  • Applied case studies in oncology, pathology, infectious disease
  • Plant, food and environmental case studies
