Hands on Training Program in Real Time PCR (qPCR) Technique

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ABU DHABI, UAE - Jul 25, 2016 - The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a biochemical technology in molecular biology

used to amplify a single copy or a few copies of a piece of DNA across several orders of

magnitude, generating thousands to millions of copies of a particular DNA sequence. PCR

concept is the first step in all DNA and RNA based research including RFLP, TRFLP, AFLP,

Real Time PCR, DNA sequencing, Microarray, Next Generation Sequencing and so on.

People who are working in diagnostic laboratories like medical, food and environmental

may be trained or educated based on the traditional diagnosis methods. They are using

microbiological plating technique for bacterial disease diagnosis and for results they have

to wait for at least 48 hours. For diagnosis of viral and parasitic diseases, mostly

symptoms and conventional PCR methods, which will give only the qualitative results

and not about the quantity of that virus or parasites (disease severity).

Most of the diagnosis laboratories have Real time PCR machine. Therefore, the

laboratory technician and biotechnology students need to have good hands on

experience in Real Time PCR. By using this technique, diagnosis will be completed in 3-4

hours and analysed qualitatively and quantitatively. Moreover, we can detect more than

two causative agents (>2 bacteria) in a medical or environmental samples. This training

will provide you complete good laboratory practices (GLP) in molecular biology

laboratory and trouble shooting in PCR and Real Time PCR.
