Quantitative PCR (Q-PCR or qPCR) also known as real-time PCR is used to quantify starting amounts of nucleic acid template by analysing the amount of DNA produced during each cycle of PCR. The techniques include SYBR Green quantitative PCR, probe-based quantitative PCR and quantitative reverse transcriptase PCR (QRT-PCR).
