QIAcuity digital PCR

The QIAcuity digital PCR in Genomics Core is a fully automated nanoplate-based platform for absolute quantification of up to five channels per sample. It is easy to adapt current qPCR assays to this dPCR system. The walk-away workflow of partitioning, thermocycling and imaging only takes about two hours to process each 24-well or 96-well nanoplate. This digital PCR system provides precise and sensitive quantification for gene expression studies, miRNA research, residual DNA analysis, genotyping, gene-editing analysis, rare mutation detection and copy number variation analysis.

Required Acknowledgement and Authorship

Please acknowledge the CBIS Core Facilities in all publications and grant applications where our equipment and/or personnel have facilitated the work. These acknowledgements are very important because documenting our contributions helps to ensure that the resources of the Core Facilities are sustainable.

  • Equipment: If you used Core Facility equipment, please note this in the Materials and Methods. e.g., Thermogravimetric analysis was carried out using a TA Instruments TGA-Q50 (Rensselaer CBIS Analytical Biochemistry Core Facility).
  • Personnel: Please consider including CBIS personnel as co-authors on your publications when they have made a significant intellectual contribution to the research. Include CBIS Core Facility directors or staff as co-PI or co-investigators in grant applications when they provide a significant contribution to the grant proposal and scientific/intellectual leadership for the proposed work. Please follow these guidelines: ABRF Recommended Guidelines for Authorship on Manuscripts. Also, our Core Facility personnel always appreciate when they are mentioned in the Acknowledgements section of publications.
  • Required Funding Authorization Form: Rensselaer researchers must fill out the CBIS Cores Authorization Form (PDF) to use the CBIS Core Facilities.
