The Ghent University Digital PCR Consortium (DIGPCR)

DIGPCR combines the complementary expertise from various Ghent University researchers on digital PCR. We collaborate with internal and external partners on using digital PCR for various applications. As expert users of this technology, we frequently perform trainings on dPCR and give lectures at conferences or workshops. We are also co-authors on the dMIQE guidelines for transparent reporting of dPCR data.


A better way to start building.


Our consortium has access to different dPCR platforms, read about our equipment, where to find it and who to contact.


Use the software tools we have developed for dPCR analysis, including tresholding methods, assay validation methods and power calculation for dPCR experiments.
