Ahram Biosystems makes a new polymerase chain reaction (PCR) device that provides fast, sensitive and reliable amplification of nucleic acid in a battery operated, handheld format. The device (called Palm PCR™) is portable and designed to allow users to perform PCR nearly anywhere. Palm PCR™ was recently featured in a major science textbook for US college students (Human Genetics and Society, Cengage Learning, see cover) in a chapter describing PCR applications in the field of DNA forensics. Ahram’s Palm PCR™ also received a favorable product review in Science Magazine (7 October, 2011). For more information, see www.ahrambio.com.
