Application Note: Thermo Scientific PCR and qPCR Cycle Optimization for Faster Results
15 November 2013

PCR and real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) are widely used technologies for many applications. The faster the results can be obtained, the more quickly research can move forward. By optimizing the cycling conditions, significant time can be saved. The ramp rates and heat dispersion of different instruments will affect how much cycle optimization a researcher can perform. This application note demonstrates examples of the optimization process.
