Digital PCR System
RainDance Technologies RainDrop digital PCR system is designed for sensitivity, multiplexing, and absolute quantitation in PCR analysis.
Capable of generating more than a billion reactions in a single day, the system transforms the performance of molecular assays by enabling digital answers across a number of important applications including low-frequency tumor allele detection, gene expression, copy number variation, and SNP measurement. Built on the company's RainStorm picodroplet technology, the system generates up to 10 million picoliter-sized droplets per lane. Since each droplet encapsulates a single molecule, researchers can quickly determine the absolute number of droplets containing specific target DNA and compare that to the number of droplets with background wild-type DNA. The system also shifts the current digital PCR (dPCR) paradigm from a single-color-per-marker approach to a two color and varying probe intensity method that is capable of multiplexing up to 10 markers.
