History of Digital PCR: (r)evolution in genetic testing & analysis


Introducing digital PCR at the faculty of Veterinary Medicine

We are proud to announce our 3 year collaboration with Stilla Technologies. With this collaboration, we will have access to the Naica digital PCR platform to explore novel applications for digital PCR and provide training.

Digital PCR is a more elegant and direct method to quantify nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) offering increased precision and accuracy over the classically used quantitative real-time PCR. Since 2011, this technology is becoming cost effective for research and diagnostic applications. At Ghent University, we have a long standing expertise on digital PCR and we have pioneered the use of digital PCR for various applications ( The Naica platform is located in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (Department of Morphology).
