qPCR 2010 Event - Call for Abstracts
BioEPS GmbH is organizing the qPCR 2010 Event taking place April 7th – 9th, 2010 in Vienna, Austria. Scientists from all around the world will come to exchange ideas, share experiences, and discuss the exciting future of the perhaps most powerful analytical technology ever developed in the life sciences area – the quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR).
We have the pleasure to announce the Call for Abstracts for the qPCR 2010 Event !
Finally we want to present 40 scientific talks from international scientists and diagnostic companies in the qPCR field who will show their latest research findings and newest technologies. The focus of the qPCR 2010 Event will be “The ongoing evolution of qPCR” representing all new and emerging techniques, applications and data analysis methods.
Deadline is 31st January 2010 => http://submission.qPCR2010-Vienna.net
MIQE and QM strategies in qPCR
The MIQE guidelines: minimum information for publication of quantitative real-time PCR experiments. Following these guidelines will encourage better experimental practice, allowing more reliable and unequivocal interpretation of qPCR results. QM strategies in real-time PCR to guarantee better and more valid results.

Using qPCR the amount of target nucleic acid in a complex sample can be determined with high precision, great accuracy, excellent specificity and the ultimate sensitivity of detecting a single molecule. The technique has revolutionized all molecular sciences and diagnostic applications. Conference presentations will include MIQE guidelines & QM strategies in qPCR, high performance nucleic acid extraction, single-cell applications, Epigenetics & High-Resolution-Melt analysis, circulating nucleic acids, and application involving RNAi and microRNA.
Further developments of qPCR technology will be presented include improved instrumentation, miniaturization, high throughput platforms, cost efficacy, validity, flexibility, quality assessment and reliable Cq calculations, expression data comparisons, and interpretation.
Today there is no field in the life sciences research, molecular biology and diagnostics areas that has not introduced qPCR technology for nucleic acid analysis. The combination with reverse transcription enables determination of mRNA, microRNA and widely opens the window for “Transcriptomics” – the first step of quantitative “Gene Expression Profiling” and “Functional Genomics”.
An Industrial Exhibition will take place parallel to the symposium, with 32 leading biotechnology companies presenting their latest developments, including real-time PCR cyclers, NA extraction robots, consumables, new fluorescence dyes, NA detection and amplification chemistries, as well as real-time PCR data analysis software.
