Digital PCR for GMO testing, pathogen detection in the environment
From genetically modified organism (GMO) testing, to identifying food adulteration, to analyzing SARS-Cov-2 in human wastewater samples, digital PCR can be used to precisely quantitate the levels of nucleic acids across food and environmental applications.
Literature on applications of digital PCR continue to expand, reaching across the breadth of the environmental space with analysis on aquatic systems, microbial biodegration, plant nuclei genotyping, and population-level pathogen detection, particularly because of digital PCR’s better tolerance to inhibitors.
From sample extraction to analysis for food and environmental testing
The Nio+ system offers a fast, easy-to-use platform for quantification of genetic targets. In order to detect and quantify multiple genetic targets in a single run, the Nio+ system also offers the highest multiplexing available on the market today. When coupled with a sample preparation platform such as the Maxwell® RSC instruments from Promega, users are provided with a seamless end-to-end workflow – from sample preparation to analysis.
Digital PCR for food and environmental testing applications
Stilla provides digital PCR kits out-of-the-box, as well as custom assay design services in order to help researchers characterize and quantify genetic targets across applications for food and environmental testing.
