      Abstract
      DATE:  October 22, 2020
      TIME:   8:00am PDT, 11:00am EDT
       
      Detection and/or amplification of target DNA sequences by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a prevalent method in molecular biology. PCR has a broad range of applications, including use in research for infectious diseases, cancer, forensic analysis, and agricultural biotechnology.
       
      Now, more than ever, researchers need ways to increase lab efficiency and productivity. While the fundamental principles of PCR have remained the same over the years, vast improvements have been made to DNA polymerases, instrumentation, and plastic consumables to streamline PCR and provide solutions for challenging research applications.
       
      In this webinar, we will cover time-saving tips to help increase your PCR productivity. We will address common PCR pitfalls that can be avoided with innovations in enzymes, instruments, and plastics. We will also discuss PCR tools that are available to researchers who wish to push PCR boundaries to overcome research limitations. 
       
      Learning Objectives:
      • Discover ways to get the most out of your PCR and improve lab productivity
      • Understand key properties of DNA polymerases, thermal cycler technologies, and plastics parameters for optimal PCR results
      • Learn how to avert common PCR mistakes and troubleshoot PCR issues when they arise

       

      Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
