qPCR and RT-qPCR are widely used in the development of molecular diagnostic assays with applications in human diagnostics, animal health, environmental, plant and food testing.
Lyophilization is a common technique used for creating ambient temperature stable PCR assays. However, the process is time consuming, complex to optimize and requires expensive equipment. Meridian’s new air-dryable technology replaces lyophilization with a fast, simple, and inexpensive oven-drying process, making it ideal for manufacturing room-temperature stable, highly sensitive and cost-effective molecular diagnostic assays.
This webinar will cover:
- How Meridian’s new air-dryable technology compares to traditional lyophilization
- The impact of the air-drying process on qPCR performance
- The combination of air-drying with inhibitor tolerance technology in qPCR assays
