Copy number changes under the form of deletions, duplications or amplifications are known to be involved in numerous genetic diseases. Digital PCR is the method of choice of gene copy number analysis in DNA. Due to its high resolution, digital PCR has advantages for accurate discrimination between higher copy numbers, e.g. 6 from 7 copies, but also for regular gene copy number quantification (1 vs. 2 vs. 3).
