What are Delta Gene assays?
Delta Gene assays are high-quality, rapid-turnaround, real-time qPCR gene expression assays developed to lower overall costs, accelerate workflow and maintain data quality. The assays are designed by the Fluidigm Assay Design Group and use the EvaGreen® DNA binding dye for detection. DNA binding dyes are a lower-cost alternative to the use of labeled probes for gene expression analysis. The method is sensitive, and when coupled with melting curve analysis, the specificity of the primers can be confirmed. The assay conversion rate is typically >95%, excluding no calls.
