This webinar featuring Mikael Kubista, founder and CEO of TATAA Biocenter, along with Douglas Scientific Business Development Executive Ross Higgins, will define several key performance metrics of qPCR instruments such as dynamic range, Cq uniformity, sensitivity, and resolution, and further discuss their importance in practical terms. Using data from characterization and verification studies performed on the IntelliQube instrument from Douglas Scientific, we will also review approaches to evaluating these metrics, including assays and software tools that streamline the analysis and interpretation of performance testing results.

Professor Sir Doug Turnbull from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research at the University of Newcastle explains his research into mitochondrial donation, the innovative treatment that hopes to stop faulty mitochondria being passed on from mother to child to prevent incurable genetic diseases.
The first babies conceived with this treatment through IVF may be born in the UK soon.
From their diet to their diseases, koalas are pretty special. Now researchers have sequenced the koala’s genome, unlocking the secrets that make these fuzzy fellas so unique. The genome is revealing everything from how koalas cope with munching poisonous eucalyptus leaves, to how they respond to chlamydia infections. The hope is that these insights will not only help us understand these fascinating marsupials, but also aid conservation efforts across Australia.
