Since the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was first described by Kary Mullis in 1983, the process has been greatly developed and modified, originating a new range of PCR techniques and applications. This white paper investigates the wide variety of techniques that utilise PCR and demonstrates how the speed and accuracy of the xxpress® qPCR thermal cycler makes it ideal for performing these methods.
