The Future of Viral Diagnosis?

A Novel Quantitative PCR Mediated by High-Fidelity DNA Polymerase. Traditional PCR methods can be used for viral diagnosis, however they are required to be highly sensitivity, specific and reproducible for this use. These criteria are largely dependent on the complementarity [...]

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 [...]

Is Your Food a Fraud? A Tool for Testing Food with the Naked Eye

To what extent do we trust labels? Does food really contain what is claimed? These are questions which can be resolved by simply testing the DNA present in food, a process currently performed using a labour-intensive, barcoding method. A 'barcode' is a short [...]

A new PCR primer database for RNA virus detection

A new database has been created which outlines primers for use in the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect RNA viruses. Details of this exciting new database, MRPrimerV, were published in Nucleic Acids Research.   "Abstract: Many infectious diseases are caused by viral [...]

PCR in mutation analysis

Mutation analysis is the process of finding known and unknown mutations in DNA and RNA, and PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is used as part of the method. Source: steve-spicer.com In the clinic, mutation analysis can be used to [...]

Applications in PCR: PCR in genetic and genome engineering

Genetic and genome engineering is a useful tool for researchers, from producing proteins to understanding disease, and the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has a vital role supporting this process by cloning the DNA fragments used to modify the genomes of [...]

What are the different kinds of PCR?

PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is an amazing tool for use in clinical and diagnostic medicine and research, but there is more than just one kind, all with different applications and levels of sensitivity. This is a whirlwind trip around the [...]
