Branched DNA technology (bDNA) 14th November 2021

Introduction The Branched DNA Assay (bDNA) provides a unique and powerful tool for the reliable quantification of nucleic acid molecules. Fundamentally different from target amplification methods such as PCR, the bDNA assay directly measures nucleic acid molecules at physiological levels by amplifying the reporter signal, rather than replicating the target sequences as a means of detection, and thus avoids the errors inherent in the extraction and amplification of target sequences. The bDNA assay employs linear… Continue reading
