Simple workflow limits hands-on steps and sample manipulation
The QuantStudio 3D Digital PCR Chip enables a simple and streamlined workflow. Unlike other methods that require multiple transfer steps and upfront sample digestion, the QuantStudio 3D Digital PCR Chip is simply loaded and sealed—ready for PCR and analysis. With the ability to thermal cycle up to 24 chips at one time and taking less than 30 seconds to read each chip, the QuantStudio 3D Digital PCR System enables a simple, streamlined workflow to perform digital PCR.
Affordable solution to enable digital PCR in any lab
Because the QuantStudio® 3D Digital PCR System is not based on expensive droplet flow technology, it is able to be priced significantly lower than other systems on the market. Compared to the closest digital PCR competitor, it would take at least 10 years of average use* to equal the savings achieved with the QuantStudio® 3D Digital PCR System. In addition, as the provider of over 8 million TaqMan® assays, a staple of digital PCR, we can maximize your savings for the assays you need.

*Average use assumed to be 1000 samples run per year.
Absolute quantification at your fingertips
Absolute quantification by digital PCR is made possible by thousands of individual reactions running in parallel. Manufactured from a silicon substrate and etched with 20,000 consistently sized nanoscale reaction wells, the Applied Biosystems™ QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR Chip enables more controlled sample loading and less reaction dropout than droplet-based approaches, ensuring higher precision for absolute quantification.
Digital PCR extends the performance of existing TaqMan Assays, enabling applications that benefit from higher sensitivity, precision, or absolute quantification. Such applications include rare mutation detection (otherwise known as looking for a needle in a haystack such as in cancer samples), virus and bacteria quantification and detection (getting an absolute count of pathogens detected), genetically-modified organism detection (detecting a GMO seed where in places it shouldn’t be), next-generation sequencing workflow optimization (accurately quantifying NGS libraries and validating sequencing results), and reference standard quantification (developing a reference for your real‐time experiment when it doesn’t exist).
