As Molecular Diagnostics Accelerates, Novel PCR Alternatives Gain Traction | GenomeWeb

New DNA-amplification technologies that bypass the PCR process may save reference labs and insurance companies tens of millions of dollars each year and increase the pace at which molecular diagnostics and new SNP technologies are adopted.

But despite these technologies’ potential, their inventors have two substantial hurdles ahead of them: First, it is widely believed that few of them know these new platforms exist. Then there’s Roche, the granddaddy of the polymerase chain reaction.
