IDT Shares its Expertise at qPCR 2010 in Vienna
News Apr 09, 2010
Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) will be presenting at the upcoming qPCR 2010 International Symposium, 7 – 9 April, in Vienna. Dr Mark Behlke, IDT’s Chief Scientific Officer will talk about, ‘Hydrolysis probes with improved quenching and performance’, which addresses the requirement for efficient quenching to optimize probe performance.
The presentation will also introduce IDT’s newly developed dual-quenching probe technology that enables the placement of an internal quencher within close proximity to the 5’ fluorophore, in addition to the 3’ quencher, thereby improving the probe’s quencher performance. This new quencher significantly reduces background fluorescence for highly precise and sensitive results.
Chinese researchers have developed interfacially polymerized porous polymer particles for low- abundance glycopeptide separation. These polymer particles - with hydrophilic-hydrophobic heterostructured nanopores - can separate low-abundance glycopeptides from complex biological samples with high-abundance background molecules efficiently.
