In today’s cost-conscious healthcare environment, consistent and reliable results are crucial for laboratory success.
Despite being relatively straightforward, PCR testing is not impervious to error—missteps can result in poor sensitivity and/or specificity. Every step in the PCR process must be rigorously controlled and assessed, properly calculating and applying precise denaturation and annealing temperatures during cycling to determine appropriate primer and probe concentrations for your desired targets, and more.1
Given the high degree of precision required to maintain robust laboratory processes, optimization is crucial to delivering reliable results. Labs that invest time and resources in a proper PCR setup are more likely to achieve reliable, reproducible, and robust results with higher specificity and sensitivity.
