Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: PCR Machines
Make                                   : Eppendorf
Model                                  : Vapoprotect
Specification   :

Click to ViewTo amplify a segment of DNA using polymerase chain reaction, DNA is denatured, into two pieces of single-stranded DNA. Next the Taq polymerase enzyme builds the new strands of DNA, using the original strands as templates

  Working Principles
Click to ViewPolymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a technology used for quick and easy amplifying DNA sequences, which is based on the principle of enzymatic replication of the nucleic acids.
