  8. Enabling point of care molecular diagnostics by developing an adaptive PCR instrument and on demand kit reagents

    SBC: BIOVENTURES, INC            Topic: 172

    Because of its high sensitivity polymerase chain reaction PCR is the gold standard for the diagnosis of many infectious diseases but generally only implemented in well equipped laboratories One of the major roadblocks for expanding PCR to point of care markets is the lack of simple robust single tube PCR designs which preserve its laboratory based high sensitivity and specificity In this F ...
