Real-Time PCR is a technique for amplifying and detecting DNA, used for detecting the presence of specific pathogens in a sample. Real-Time PCR can amplify DNA that exists in very low numbers in a sample, and is therefore a highly sensitive method. Real-Time PCR results can be acquired very rapidly, making it an invaluable method in situations where time is of the essence.

Real-Time PCR results are also useful for early assessment of potential outbreaks and identification of different strains or genotypes of pathogens. Together with results from histology, we provide the customer with an accurate evaluation of the health and disease status of the fish.
