The 4th qPCR & Digital PCR Congress will take place on 20-21 October in London.  Once again it will be co-located with the 3rd Synthetic Biology Congress and the 2nd Microfluidics Congress.  Last year this event attracted over 550 attendees and more than 100 poster presentations. 

Bringing together 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  examined 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, 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 applications and guidelines in dPCR whilst also keeping up to date with latest developments and strategies in qPCR.

The conference provided 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
  • Healthcare Case Studies
  • Plant, food and environmental case studies

" It's a well organized and well attended conference. 
There is a lot of buzz and people are very interested in the discussions.
