What is PCR?
PCR, short for polymerase chain reaction, is a lab technique that takes small quantities of DNA and amplifies or increases their number. Utilizing TaqMan probes, DNA is amplified using a targeted approach to identify pathogens down to the species level. Our PCR techniques are highly sensitive, specific, and reproducible, allowing for rapid analysis of biological samples.
