  • What is Real-Time PCR? How Does It Work?

    When speaking with food safety managers trying to upgrade their testing methods, we are often asked —what is real-time PCR? How does it work? The quick answer is: PCR (or polymerase chain reaction, for those science nerds out there) is a technique for multiplying a specific strand of DNA or RNA millions of times by manipulating the cell’s natural machinery. Once multiplied or amplified, the target DNA can readily be detected though a variety of methods.

Testimonials

  • “We love the Hunter qPCR System so much that we bought two of them! The Hunter is reliable and very easy to use. We use our Hunter instruments to screen Halal products for porcine DNA. It couldn’t be easier or more user-friendly. We are very happy with the customer support provided by the InstantLabs team.”

    Global Nutraceutical Manufacturer
  • “For our hydroponic lettuce range we wanted an in-house pathogen testing program that would give us reliable results quickly.  We like the accuracy (no false positives) and reliability of the Hunter system.  The precision of a qPCR system is fast and can be used by almost any trained employee.”
