Researchers at Sangamo BioSciences use Bio-Rad's QX100 Droplet Digital PCR system to quantify the level of HIV reservoir in treatment subjects with their unique zinc-finger-based therapy. At approximately one copy of HIV in 1,000 cells analyzed, this quantification would present a challenge for conventional methods.
The Droplet Digital PCR system allows for the quantification of target DNA with unrivaled precision by partitioning samples into 20,000 nanoliter-sized droplets. After PCR on a thermal cycler, PCR-positive and PCR-negative droplets are counted to provide absolute quantification of the target DNA.
