28 November 2013 - Dutch life science and diagnostics solutions provider Bioke has become a distributor of US RainDance Technologies' Digital PCR System in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany, as of end-October, the pair said.

The product utilises RainDance's RainStorm technology to generate up to 10 million picoliter-sized droplets per lane. As each droplet encapsulates a single molecule, customers are able to rapidly determine the absolute number of droplets that contain specific target DNA and compare them to the number of droplets with background wild-type DNA.

In addition, the product uses two colours per marker with varying probe intensity method, instead of a single colour, enabling multiplexing of up to 10 markers.

Bioke is part of US antibodies maker Cell Signaling Technology Inc.
