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!
