5 Reasons why good PCR plastic could make a difference…

I. Evaporation during a PCR run The salt concentration has a major effect on the polymerase chain reaction. Elevated levels of magnesium can increase the possibility of unspecific amplification of the template DNA. This elevated concentration of salts could happen by wrong pipetting volumes, more often it could also be caused by evaporation of liquids […]
