Because BIG PCR happens in miniaturized packages

Video

In today's scientific environment, the pressure is on to do more with less. And how do you do that? With miniaturization. Miniaturization is the key for doing more with less in the life science industry. When you miniaturize reactions, you: . minimize sample volume . lower reagent cost . boost throughput Watch a short video of Dr. Luke Linz, LGC Laboratory Operations Manager, explaining how miniaturization works!

Brain Regions Implicated in Mental Disorders Influenced by Neanderthal Genes
News

Findings indicate that the more a person’s genome carries genetic vestiges of Neanderthals, the more certain parts of his or her brain and skull resemble those of humans’ evolutionary cousins that went extinct 40,000 years ago.
