Description: qbase+ is a Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Experiments (MIQE) compliant statistical analysis software for Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR). This software is intended for relative quantification and for gene copy number analysis. This software allows for user-defined global mean, multiple reference gene normalization factors, post-PCR quality assessments, inter-run calibration, House-Keeping Gene (HKG) selection via geNorm, and Copy Number Variation (CNV) analysis.

This technology collects and stores data locally in a global workspace. The workspace is part of a user`s default file system and can be included in backup procedures like any other file or folder. Within this workspace/file system, data and settings are hierarchically organized into projects, experiment, and runs.

Note: This technology was sold to Biogazelle by Bio-Rad.
