Real-time qPCR – rapid, early, specific and sensitive detection
Viruses and other microbes that cause infection are increasingly identified only through their genetic signatures. Real-time qPCR is the industry standard for DNA analysis, and fluorogenic probes with Black Hole Quencher™ (BHQ™) dyes* are the gold standard for pathogen detection in qPCR. Public health agencies depend upon real-time qPCR for single-molecule sensitivity and impressive dynamic range in their most urgent monitoring programs.
To assist in probe and primer selection, LGC, Biosearch Technologies offers RealTimeDesign™ (RTD™) software. RealTimeDesign software is a free, web-based assay design application for real-time qPCR that can design probes and primer sets to resolve non-standard pathogens and emerging threats.
