Why Use Real-Time PCR?

Real-time PCR relies on the amplification and detection of DNA and is the most advanced testing method available. This technology has many advantages over other testing methods, including:

– Speed—when using Real-Time PCR, results are at your fingertips in just two hours, as compared to days when sending out samples.

 – Accuracy—Real-Time PCR relies on the direct analysis of DNA, which allows PCR assays to ensure accuracy of the results on the genetic level.

 – Sensitivity—Real-Time PCR can detect as little as one strand of DNA in a given sample, ensuring that if it’s present, you’ll find it.
