Digital PCR has recently become recognized as a powerful tool for analyzing somatic mutations in cancers. The RainDrop digital PCR is based on proprietary pico-liter droplet technology, and delivers multiplexed (as high as 10-plex) detection of genetics polymorphisms. The technology divides 50uL reaction into 10 million droplets, and enables customers to detect somatic mutations at 1-in-1 million sensitivity. Success customer stories will be introduced, in the fields of liquid biopsy, miRNA measurement, fusion transcript detection, and methylation quantification. Other unique benefits of the RainDrop Digital PCR will also be discussed.
