Quantitative PCR (qPCR) and reverse transcription qPCR (RT-PCR) are the gold standard methods for examining gene expression due to their unparalleled sensitivity, specificity, and linear dynamic range. Therefore, qPCR is the chosen technology when aiming to quantify DNA, mRNA, microRNA and lncRNA. At PeploBio, we offer a wide range of bespoke PCR services along with TaqMan (ThermoFisher) ready solutions.
Designing optimal primers and probes along with stringent evaluation testing is essential when developing qPCR assays. Differentiating between probe-based versus dye-based (SYBR Green) qPCR is considered based on the sensitivity and specificity requirements of the assay. Probe-based assays offer the additional advantage of multi-plex capability when detecting multiple targets is required.
