PCR Types Performed by the xxpress® Thermal Cycler

To read the white paper, click here. Introduction 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 [...]

Polymerase Chain Reaction: The Past, Present and Future

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR), sometimes described as ‘molecular photocopying’, is a laboratory technique that allows researchers and technicians to amplify DNA or RNA from as little as a single strand. The technology was first created in 1983 by Biochemist [...]

The Story of the Polymerase Chain Reaction

 A recent article, by Maggie Koreth-Baker for Nautilus, details the story of the Polymerase Chain Reaction "from a Pink Squiggle to the Human Genome Project". The article details the discovery of the thermophilic bacterium, Thermus Aquaticus, from which heat-resistant Taq [...]

PCR 101: An introduction to PCR

The polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, was first discovered in 1983 by Kary Mullis. But what is it? It is a method for amplifying small samples of DNA or RNA, creating millions of copies in just a few hours, and [...]

Who invented PCR?

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique, which creates millions of copies of strands of tiny samples of DNA, is now a routine research technique and many labs have a PCR thermal cycler sitting on a bench or in a corner. [...]
