Gene expression by quantitative Real Time PCR

Acobiom is specialized in the discovery of genomic and transcriptomic biomarkers. To reach its objectives, the company uses quantitative RT-PCR technology for monitoring patterns of expressed genes.

Regarding the range of molecular biology and genomic technologies available in the field of Life Sciences, including Modern Medicine, Veterinary Science, Food-stuff, Agriculture, etc., the need for performing quantitative analyses of genes or DNA sequences has dramatically increased.
Acobiom has gained tremendous experience in quantitative RT-PCR analysis.

In a high throughput routine, Acobiom uses real-time PCR for monitoring global patterns of gene expression.
Real-time PCR provides an absolute quantitative analysis of gene expression and a rapid and precise confirmation of genetic/genomic/transcriptomic changes.
Acobiom’s expertise is focused on quantitative Real-Time PCR because this technique:

  • Is the most sensitive technique for mRNA detection and quantification currently available;
  • Can be used to quantify mRNA levels from much smaller samples;
  • Gives more accurate measurements and is much better adapted to analyses performed on large numbers of samples;
  • Has been successfully developed and has become a reliable and easy to use standard method for the detection and/or quantification of nucleic acid sequences;
  • Reduces hands-on time and increases reliability;
  • Has been adopted for a wide range of new applications.
