Design and Fabrication of a Micro PCR Module for POC Applications
Poster May 14, 2009
The design and fabrication process of a micro PCR module is presented. The final system will be integrated in an innovative Lab on a Chip (LOC) to provide a technological platform able to detect autoimmune genetic diseases.
When there is a need to quickly analyze samples using a number of different PCR assays, it is likely that optimal conditions for each assay will not be the same. First, different assays often will require different annealing temperatures for their primers. In addition, amplicons may be designed to be of different lengths and therefore require varying durations of the extension step.READ MORE
