I have never done DD-PCR, so a with a grain of NaCl, some things I've heard:

The big problem seems to be reproducibility of low-stringency PCR.  To that
end, run a number of duplicate samples and pick only consistent bands.  A
really good PCR machine with well-to-well temperature consistency is key 
(PEC model 9600 was reccommended to me) -- 0.5 deg. C matters.

Good luck,

Benjamin Braun
