Real-Time PCR Services

Real-Time PCR Services

Real-Time PCR has long been established as the standard method of choice for laboratories requiring reliable quantitative PCR (QPCR). In contrast to traditional PCR end-point detection, by using specialised instrumentation and dye-labeling, Real-Time PCR collects data as the reaction is proceeding. Because the quantity of PCR product is measured in the exponential phase of the reaction, Real-Time PCR provides an accurate as well as fast and sensitive means to quantify your amplicons.

Our Real-Time PCR services are ISO-accredited and suitable for quantification of gene expression, SNP genotyping and assessment of copy number variation. We use both SYBR® Green and Taqman® technologies and either standard curve or Comparative CT analysis. GCP-compliant studies can be conducted if required. 

 Use our Real-Time PCR services for your small to medium-sized projects or where your requirement is either small number of assays/large sample number or small number of samples/large assay number. For larger projects you should consider using our alternative Genotyping Services, Microarray Services and Next Generation Sequencing Services.

Use our Real-Time PCR services and our traditional PCR-based genotyping and sex testing services for your animal breeding programs.
