Real-Time Quantitative PCR monitors and measures the amplification of a specific genetic sequence using fluorescent dyes. RT-qPCR is a highly flexible technique which can be customised with a variety of assays to suit many functions.

  • Diagnostic – Rapidly detects the presence of micro-organisms including pathogens.
  • Gene Expression – Analyses the RNA present in cells to measure gene expression.
  • Genotyping – can distinguish single-nucleotide polymorphisms to measure genetic variation including detecting specific alleles.
  • Our dedicated PCR lab offers a complete high-throughput solution from sample processing, nucleic acid extraction and purification to RT-qPCR. We can also offer a direct door-to-door courier service for time-critical or sensitive clinical trial studies. We use the latest state-of-the-art automated equipment to deliver the most accurate and sensitive results.
