Steps for a Successful qPCR Experiment

Steps for a Successful qPCR Experiment

Quantitative PCR (qPCR) is the method of choice for precise quantification of gene expression. qPCR can utilize a variety of probe-based methods such as 5′ nuclease dual-labeled probes, molecular beacons, FRET probes, and Scorpions™ Probes, or use intercalating fluorescent dyes such as SYBR. 5′ nuclease assays have the advantage of the specificity that comes with using a sequence-specific, dual-labeled probe, and is the preferred technique for gene expression analysis. This article will focus on 5′ nuclease assay design and experimental setup considerations that will assist in obtaining accurate and consistent results.
