With researchers investigating the coronavirus across the world, digital PCR could provide important information and help detect the virus. A recent initiative led by Yuzi Holdings and TusPark Science & Technology Service Group to donate two Digital PCR systems for coronavirus research in the City of Zhengzhou and City of Xinyang, China will enable the use of Digital PCR for virus detection and to monitor the mutations of the virus.

Digital PCR could help researchers in detecting the mutation rate of the virus and how the mutation rate affects the disease as a highly accurate and sensitive technology is required for this monitoring.

Digital PCR is an alternative detection method known for its higher sensitivity, accuracy, resolution and tolerance, compared to standard quantitative PCR.
