Optimizing qPCR sensitivity and specificity

September 20th
1pm to 2pm


qPCR can be a powerful tool for analyzing gene expression. When designed properly, however its strength relies on the quality of the primers used in it. Our scientists know this and follow stringent guidelines to design primers for our GeneQuery qPCR arrays. When researchers design their own primers without comprehensive knowledge of good primer design, qPCR results can be inadvertently influenced yielding unreliable and inconsistent data. Our webinar will cover guidelines used by our scientists in designing our quality GeneQuery qPCR primers arrays while highlighting our human endothelial cell biology array. An extended FAQ session for your questions and concerns will follow.


  • Delineate frequently overlooked primer optimization parameters during qPCR design.
  • Demonstrate the benefits of properly optimized primers in qPCR analysis.
  • • Exemplify the ease and use of GeneQuery qPCR arrays in gene expression analysis.
