qPCR Workshops:

qPCR courses are held regularly in:
- Göteborg (Sweden)
- Prague (Czech Republic)
- ... .. world-wide

Our highly appreciated courses are suitable for researchers, technicians, post-graduate students or anyone that wants to learn more about real-time PCR and real-time PCR related technologies. Most of our courses have both theoretical and practical parts where the participants get to do experiments themselves under experienced supervision. Different course modules are available at different occasion and you may take a full week course or just a single course module  =>  TATAA course event calendar

qPCR Seminars and Education Programs:

Free of charge web seminars

Sigma-Aldrich is pleased to be able to bring you a series of webex seminars dedicated to qPCR. They will include technical presentations from international speakers discussing the latest techniques and aspects of qPCR. To register, go to QPCR Seminars
Sigma-Aldrich has the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar series devoted to the technical aspects of qPCR and RT-qPCR.

Expert speakers will cover areas such as:
  • QPCR assay design and optimisation
  • Template handling and purification
  • Focus on the optimisation of RT-qPCR
  • Various approaches to genetic analysis
  • Working with limiting samples
  • Data analysis
  • Troubleshooting
  • Assay improvement option for challenging assays
  • LNA technology and application
Seminar grading key:
  • Level 1 - terrified and beginners
  • Level 2 - something for everyone but a background knowledge is assumed
  • Level 3 - improvers, seminars focused on specific areas of interest
  • Level 4 - brave and experienced, delving into the fine detail and the more troublesome aspects of the technique
Available Seminars:

New seminars

This six webinar series on PCR will be based on MIQE guidelines. MIQE, Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative-Real Time PCR, helps scientists to design and report reliable and reproducible qPCR results. They help others to understand and replicate already conducted experiments. In this webinar series we will discuss step by step critical points which need to be taken into consideration in order to acquire reliable data.

Topics will include:
  • Basic principles of  PCR, qPCR and ddPCR
  • qPCR Assay Design
  • Importance of Sample Quality in qPCR Analysis
  • Improving Assay Quality by Optimization and Validation
  • Data Analysis
  • Troubleshooting
