Paper Abstract

Over the last year, a team of scientists and engineers has built the first battery-powered, hand-held multichamber PCR instrument. It is the culmination of nearly a decade of R&D into PCR instrumentation. Each of the instruments over this time was based on bulk micromachining of single-crystal silicon to produce the heart of the instrument, a thermal- cycling chamber. When fluorescent reagents were developed to perform real-time PCR, we added this capability to our instruments.
