Which Optical Filters Are Used in qPCR Instruments?

To conduct data analysis of nucleic acid samples, typically DNA, a reasonable amount of DNA material is essential. Today’s standard approach is to replicate very small samples of specific DNA to obtain sufficient quantities that allow detection or identification, for example in biomedical or forensic laboratories. The common method is the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). … Continue reading
