Nobel-prize winning technology

PCR is widely recognized as one of the most important scientific developments of our generation. Fundamentally, PCR allows you to copy a single segment of DNA millions of times. Simply put, this makes it possible to take a specimen, such as a bacterium or virus containing genetic material weighing only one trillionth of a gram, copy a chosen genetic sequence over and over, and, within hours, generate a test sample sufficient to answer a specific diagnostic question.

Roche have strived to evolve PCR into a technology that combines ease-of-use automation and real-time testing with exquisite sensitivity, specificity and broad quantitative range. For more information, click on the links below:
