  • "For more info, visit The webinar discusses tips and tricks used in Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) assay design. Topics covered include the availability of commercial PrimePCR™ ddPCR assays from Bio-Rad, common pitfalls, and recommendations for designing an effective ddPCR assay. The QX200™ Droplet Digital PCR System, Bio-Rad's second-generation digital PCR system, provides absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA molecules using EvaGreen or TaqMan hydrolysis probes, yielding unmatched sensitivity and precision for a wide variety of applications. Presenter: Dianna Maar, Senior Scientist, Bio-Rad Digital Biology Center Dr. Maar studied at the University of California Los Angeles, where she received both her Bachelor’s and Doctoral degrees majoring in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics. During her graduate training, Dianna studied antibiotic resistance, ribosomal mechanisms, and protein expression. She continued to work on translation and protein expression at The Scripps Research Institute. She expanded her research interests at Sandia National Laboratories where she worked on developing bio-fuels from protein fractions, identified virus-entry mechanisms and gene expression profiles for Nipah Virus."
