What is PCR?


Since the Covid-19 pandemic swept the world in 2020, PCR technology (PCR) has been understood by more and more people. So what is PCR?

What is PCR?

PCR, or polymerase chain reaction, is a laboratory test used to detect the presence of genetic material in cells, bacteria, or viruses. Examination results using PCR tests are considered to be the most accurate, as this method has the advantage of being able to detect very small amounts of the organism's genetic material.

In addition to detecting Covid-19, PCR technology has the following applications.

What is PCR?

1. Pathogen identification

Pathogens, such as unknown types of bacteria and viruses, can take a long time to be identified by traditional microbiological methods. Not to mention the potential for contamination and infection that can pose a threat. The advantage of PCR, which requires only a small number of samples, is that it is an efficient and efficient method for this identification process. With PCR, it is possible to determine how similar an unknown pathogen is to a known pathogen. This will make it easier for researchers to identify and classify this novel pathogen.

GT-16 real-time quantitative PCR system is developed and manufactured by GENNETURE. It has the characteristics of simple and fast operation, and can complete one round of detection in a short time.

2. Animal disease detection

In addition to humans, the use of PCR has also been widely used in animals. Testing that focuses only on clinical symptoms is thought to take a long time. With PCR, experts can detect diseases faster, so that prevention and treatment can be started earlier. Various animal diseases identified using PCR techniques include leptospirosis in cattle and WSSV (white spot syndrome virus) disease in pond shrimp.

Regarding the detection of animal diseases, GENETURE's animal genomic DNA nucleic acid extraction kit can perform nucleic acid extraction and collection in advance, and then use PCR technology for further detection. If you need it, please feel free to contact us.

3. Gene expression studies

PCR can differentiate gene expression between cells, tissues and organisms. Very beneficial for microbiology and clinical oncology testing. An example of the use of PCR technology in gene expression is to measure the expression of cytokine and chemokine genes in the immune system, which play an important role in organ transplantation.

The purpose of the plasma cell-free DNA extraction kit (magnetic beads) is to separate and purify high-quality cell-free DNA fragments from plasma. The extracted product can be used for genetic testing and clinical oncology testing.
