miniPCRTM, opening up the world of DNA
Meet mini8: A personalized PCR experience
Small package. Big results.
PROVEN DNA AMPLIFICATION PERFORMANCE
miniPCRTM copies targeted pieces of DNA in a process known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), with the same quality as professional benchtop thermal cyclers.
Works interchangeably with standard PCR assays, reagents, and consumables.
Read performance validation papers.

“It is nice to have a cycler on my bench that I can use at my leisure.”
“It’s really a great piece of equipment, beautifully designed for the classroom.”
“We are testing out in the field inside farms to shorten testing time for key bacterial and viral diseases. It proved very useful to really make the miniPCR mobile.”
“The miniPCR machine worked great. My assistant principal and another science teacher couldn’t believe how compact and easy it was to use. I kept photos of the graphs to show the students that weren’t there on Saturday”
“The miniPCR machines have proved to be a perfect solution, combining portability with ease of use and robust performance. […] In some cases the performance has exceeded that of the much more costly real time PCR machines that were already available within the diagnostic lab.”
