Real-time PCR (RT-PCR) technology is highly flexible and many alternative instruments and fluorescent probe systems have been developed recently. The decreased hands-on time, increased reliability, and improved quantitative accuracy of RT-PCR methods have contributed to the adoption of RT-PCR for a wide range of new applications. This essential manual presents a comprehensive guide to the most up-to-date technologies and applications, as well as providing an overview of the theory of this increasingly important technique. Renowned experts in the field describe and discuss the latest PCR platforms, fluorescent chemistries, validation software, data analysis, and internal and external controls. This timely and authoritative volume also discusses a wide range of RT-PCR applications including clinical diagnostics, biodefense, RNA expression studies, validation of array data, mutation detection, food authenticity and legislation, NASBA, molecular halotyping, and much more. Real-Time PCR: Current Technology and Applications will be an essential book for all laboratories using PCR.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The development of instruments that allowed real-time monitoring of fluorescence within PCR reaction vessels was a significant advance. The technology is flexible and many alternative instruments and fluorescent probe systems have been developed and are currently available. Real-time PCR assays can be completed rapidly since no manipulations are required post-amplification. Identification of the amplification products by probe detection in real-time is highly accurate compared with size analysis on gels. Analysis of the progress of the reaction allows accurate quantification of the target sequence over a very wide dynamic range, provided suitable standards are available. Further investigation of the real-time PCR products within the original reaction mixture using probes and melting analysis can detect sequence variants including single base mutations. Since the first practical demonstration of the concept real-time PCR has found applications in many branches of biological science. Applications include gene expression analysis, the diagnosis of infectious disease and human genetic testing. Due to their fluorimetry capabilities, these real-time machines are also compatible with alternative amplification methods such as NASBA, provided a fluorescence end-point is available.
