Bio-Rad Releases "The PCR Song": Scientists for Better PCR
As mentioned by Nature.com, The New York Times online, and blogs across the world, Bio-Rad released "The PCR Song", a tribute to all the scientists performing PCR.
Lyrics for "The PCR Song"
There was a time when to amplify DNA, You had to grow tons and tons of tiny cells.
Then along came a guy named Dr. Kary Mullis, Said you can amplify in vitro just as well.
Just mix your template with a buffer and some primers, Nucleotides and polymerases, too.
Denaturing, annealing, and extending. Well it’s amazing what heating and cooling and heating will do.
PCR, when you need to detect mutations. PCR, when you need to recombine. PCR, when you need to find out who the daddy is. PCR, when you need to solve a crime.
Bio-Rad's breakthrough Droplet Digital™ PCR technology provides absolute quantification of DNA amplification, enabling the detection of genetic changes in applications such as copy number variation and rare sequence detection.
Experimentally validated real-time PCR primer assays are available as individual SYBR® Green assays, preplated pathway- and disease-specific panels, or custom-configured plates for real-time PCR amplification applications.
Real-time PCR amplification systems combine thermal cyclers with optical reaction modules for singleplex and multiplex detection of fluorophores. All systems feature thermal gradient functionality.
DNA amplification instruments range from personal thermal cyclers to the flexible 1000-series. Multiple module, chassis, and bay choices provide options for low- to high-throughput capabilities for all your PCR amplification needs.
The PX1 PCR plate sealer efficiently seals microplatesused in thermal cycling. This heat sealing method helps deliver reliable data by minimizing sample evaporationduring PCR amplification.
Bio-Rad offers a variety of reagents such as 2x supermixes and cDNA synthesis kits. These PCR amplification kits are optimized for reverse transcription, real-time PCR, or qPCR applications on any instrument and under any condition.
A large selection of thin-wall polypropylene PCR tubes, PCR plates, seals, and accessories precisely manufactured for optimal fit and cycling performance in Bio-Rad thermal cyclers and real-time systems.
PCR amplification software for Bio-Rad thermal cyclers supports multi-instrument control and collection andanalysis of real-time PCR amplification data. Probe and primer design software is also available for real-timeqPCR assay design.
Software and firmware for Bio-Rad thermal cyclers and real-time PCR systems are periodically updated. Download updates and instructions here.
Ready-to-use PCR instrument validation tools are available in both tube and plate formats for performance verification of your real-time PCR detection systems.
