Polymerase Chain Reaction (Definition)

Polymerase chain reaction is a method of finding a specific piece of dna and copying it over and over again until there is enough to study. The technique allows a scientist to detect very small amounts of dna in a swab sample then reproduce enough of it to study it. It is very sensisitive for detecting the presence of certain bacteria and is also used in doing other ...Read more

Can someone explain a PCR lab?

Molecular testing: Pcr = polymerase chain reaction. This is a very sensitive type of molecular lab testing in which tiny pieces of genetic material are amplified over and over again under controlled conditions to assess for the presence or absence of specific genetic material and/or to characterized that material. Pcr can be used for genetic testing, diagnosis of infections, cancer testing, and other things. ...Read more
