This month in Alkami PCR Reviews, Dr. Michael Zwick talks about the
advantages and disadvantages of PCR-Based Detection Kits at
Last month's column discussed the lack of PCR-based diagnostic kits in
clinical settings in "Why Aren't PCR-Based Diagnostics Main Stream?" at
http://www.alkami.com/reviews/mszver01.htm. Reasons ranged from a lack
of acceptance by the clinical lab to the many sub-licensing contracts
required for a company to sell a PCR-based diagnostic kit.
The Alkami Biosystems site, http://www.alkami.com, is a comprehensive
resource for the polymerase chain reaction. We have online references
that include primer design tips and tools, reagent concentrations,
polymerase characteristics, PCR methods, and temperature calculations.In
addition, you will find regular reviews of PCR issues, employment
resources for the biologist, as well as special FREE lab supply offers
