Quantitative PCR (qPCR)

Real-time PCR or quantitative PCR (qPCR), due to its ability to provide rapid, specific and quantitative results, is often considered to be a gold standard technology. It allows you to determine the initial amount of DNA or RNA present in a sample.

Benefits of qPCR

  • Absolute quantification.
  • Highest precision and sensitivity.
  • High throughput.
  • Removal of PCR efficiency bias.

Starting material

Blood, cells, fresh, frozen or FFPE tissue, bone marrow, DNA, RNA, cDNA, …


We can design, validate and implement a wide range of qPCR tests, for many applications including:

  • Genetic variation analysis: Genotyping allows the detection of genetic variations in the genome that can induce changes in phenotypes or pathological modifications underlying a disease.
  • Gene expression analysis: this is the most common qPCR application. It measures the level of expression of one or more genes.
  • Mutation Detection
  • Detection of pathogens (viruses, bacteria, etc.) or parasites
  • Detection of contaminating DNA in cell lines


We utilize QuantStudio 5 and LigtCycler 480 qPCR instruments.
