Crystal Digital PCR is Stilla’s next-generation technology for absolute quantification of nucleic acids.


Using cutting-edge microfluidic innovations, this technology integrates the digital PCR process in a single consumable. The sample is first flowed through a network of microchannels and partitioned into a large 2D array of 25,000 to 30,000 individual droplets, also called a droplet crystal. PCR is then performed on-chip and the crystal is imaged to reveal the droplets that contain amplified targets. The last step consists in counting the number of these positive droplets to precisely extract the absolute quantity of nucleic acids.


With Crystal Digital PCR, the combination of powerful image analysis and intuitive visual inspection offers an unmatched level of confidence in the digital PCR measurement, yielding data you can truly trust.
