Life Technologies Awards Digital PCR Innovation Grants to Five Research Labs
Date:10/24/2013

"name">Andre Pietrzykowsi of Rutgers University – Quantification of pri-miRNA transcripts in neuronal cells following exposure to alcohol. His pioneering work on alcoholism and use of dPCR is enabling his team to pinpoint the importance of a particular microRNA in the development of alcohol tolerance in humans.

Dr. Bruno Ping of the Royal Surrey County Hospital, U.K. – Determination of HER2 copy number variation in FFPE-derived breast cancer samples. Dr. Ping's team was able to measure small changes in HER2 genes, an important marker to identify breast cancer outcomes. He also demonstrated cost-savings and the potential for the system to one day replace current tests.

Dr. Pengyu Zhu of China Agriculture University – Detection of genetically modified organisms (GMO) in mixture of complex food. Dr. Zhu's team took a dPCR approach in a project that sought to detect GMOs in processed food – an application in which dPCR's high sensitivity is ideal for identifying target molecules in mixed food samples.

Dr. Shin-ichiro Fujii of National Metrology Institute of Japan – Absolute quantification of reference samples. As the keepers of true measurements, the team compared dPCR data with that of other measuring approaches, such as isotope dilution mass spectrometry (ID-MS), to determine using known concentrations of DNA molecules.

"We congratulate the recipients of our grant program for demonstrating how digital PCR can expand beyond the application boundaries of traditional qPCR to support new scientific questions," said Chris Linthwaite, President of Genetic Analysis for Life Technologies. "All 20 of these research programs demonstrate the power of this cutting-edge technology and we look forward to seeing its usage propel the industry forward."
