Multiplex PCR

Multiplex PCR is a widespread molecular biology technique widely used in Short Tandem Repeat and Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Analysis. Multiplex PCR is a polymerase chain reaction in which multiple DNA templates can be amplified by using multiple primer pairs in a single reaction. The method was first described in 1988 to detect deletions in the …

Quantitative PCR

Quantitative PCR  (Real-time PCR) is a molecular biology technique for the amplification of targeted DNA molecules in real-time. Real-time PCR is a recently developed technique by Higuchi in 1993. This procedure uses a modified thermal cycler with UV Detector and Charged couple device (CCD) camera. The procedure measures the amount of amplicon produced in each …
