xxpress® qPCR Thermal Cycler Comparison

Thinking of purchasing a new thermal cycler? There are lots of different factors to take into consideration; the cost involved, the compatibility of different sample formats, cycling speed and thermal uniformity are often regarded as the most important. We've already [...]

Outstanding Return on Investment with the xxpress® qPCR Thermal Cycler

There are many benefits to the xxpress® qPCR thermal cycler, one very attractive quality being the outstanding return on investment (ROI) it provides. This is an important factor for many institutions when looking to invest in a new piece of [...]

Rapid, Accurate Diagnosis of Clostridium difficile Infections

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a symptomatic infectious disease caused by the anaerobic, spore-forming bacterium called Clostridium difficile. Recently CDI has become increasingly prevalent worldwide. The severity of the infection is also on the rise, meaning the requirement for a rapid and accurate method of diagnosis [...]

Effectiveness of qPCR for the Detection of TB

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It is the second leading cause of death from an infectious disease and predominantly spread through an airborne route. It continues to be a significant global health issue causing about [...]

The Future of Viral Diagnosis?

A Novel Quantitative PCR Mediated by High-Fidelity DNA Polymerase. Traditional PCR methods can be used for viral diagnosis, however they are required to be highly sensitivity, specific and reproducible for this use. These criteria are largely dependent on the complementarity [...]

Testing Water Samples for Legionella

Evaluation of Legionella qPCR against traditional culture for routine and public health testing of water samples. Legionella is a pathogenic, gram-negative bacteria responsible for causing Legionnaires' disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia, for which there is currently no vaccine. The bacteria [...]

Detecting Aquatic Organisms Using eDNA

Nuclear or mitochondrial DNA that is released into the environment from an organism is known as environmental DNA or eDNA. The eDNA of a large number of aquatic organisms can be detected in water samples by qPCR, even when at [...]

The MIQE Guidlines

The Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments. The MIQE guidelines were introduced to reduce the lack of standardisation in performing and evaluating qPCR experiments. Previously, a lack of consensus was causing several issues within the field. In [...]

PCR picks up a penguin virus

The avian influenza virus (AIV) usually only infects birds, but some variants, such as A(H5N1) and A(H7N9), have caused serious infections in humans. While there's a lot of information about the virus in some areas, little is known about places [...]

Using PCR to detect oseltamivir resistance in avian flu

Tracking the development of drug resistance in flu outbreaks is vital to determine treatment and make public health decisions, and a team of researchers in China is using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to spot mutant strains. Dynamic range [...]
