Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) is a well-established method for the quality control of food and feed products and environmental testing. Using qPCR, foodborne bacteria and viruses, spoilage organisms, animal species, GMOs and allergens can be detected, identified or quantified in a fast and reliable way.

We’d like to share our experience and knowledge with you, which is why we’re inviting you to take part in a one-day workshop on 4 March 2020. This interactive session is aimed at participants just getting started with real-time PCR, or have already used this method and want to deepen their knowledge in the area. You’ll learn about the general principles of real-time PCR, including experiment setup and data analysis. Following this, you’ll receive practical hands-on training for DNA extraction and real-time PCR, using our foodproof kits. All necessary materials and equipment will be provided on site.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with different real-time PCR cyclers, such as the Dualo32, the AriaMx, the Lightcycler 96 and the Lightcycler 480 II and will be trained on how to operate them. You will learn about the technical specifications of the cyclers and the corresponding software systems. A detailed data analysis of the acquired real-time PCR data will also be made available.

What you get:

  • Introduction to the general principles of real-time PCR
  • Hands-on training in the lab for DNA-extraction and PCR setup using our foodproof kits – all materials and necessary lab equipment will be made available
  • Training on different real-time PCR cyclers for low and high-throughput
  • Comparison of real-time PCR cyclers that we offer (technical specifications, cycler operation, software, etc.)
  • Detailed analysis of the real-time PCR data obtained during lab training
