Thermocycler for PCR: types and applications

The PCR machine allows to perform dna sequence studies or contagious diseases existing in the blood, currently, this device receives great demand in the arrest of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus virus, the advantages of this device stands out in the area of molecular biology; detecting hereditary diseases, relating kinship, among others related to DNA.

The STUDY of PCR is actually the diagnostic tests of the Polymerase Chain Reaction, the application of this study has allowed to detect the new virus that attacks the world, since it detects the RNA of the virus, which allows to know if a person is or is not infected with Covid-19; for the diagnosis of this disease a PCR machine or Thermocycler for PCR is required,ย  in addition to a trained and qualified staff for its correct use.

Characteristics of PCR tests

  • High specificity: manages to differentiate between two microorganisms.
  • High sensitivity: detects viral genetic material.
  • Early: detects the virus in the early stages.

These PCR processes are automated, due to the use of PCR Thermocyclers, which allow heating and cooling the samples to control the temperature necessary for eachreaction, thanks to the use of this device we can detect PCR variations, and in general, it is an easy and simple technique used in medicine and biology laboratories,ย  due to the wide variety of its applications.

Applications of PCR Thermal Cyclers

The applications of this PCR technique have multiple applications in different areas ranging from basic science to applied science; we already know that PCR Thermocyclers allow the arrest of DNA fragments; But we can goย  furtherย  and list different areas, and what the application of PCR means:

  • Research: cloning of a segment of DNA.
  • Medicine: diagnostic tool: genetic diagnosis, genotyping andspecies, detecting diseases.
  • Paleontology, biological anthropology: recovers DNA.
  • Forensic sciences: establishes a filial relationship of DNA samples.
  • Agronomy and diversity: allows to produce genetic traces of groups of crops of interest.
