Real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction
The Real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction is an improvised version of the original Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) developed by Kary Mullis, who received the Nobel Prize in 1993 in Chemistry, and her coworkers during the mid-1980s. (1)
Monitoring of the Real-Time PCR
The product that is formed binds to a flourescent reporter that is required for the Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction. It's presence is reported by flourescent. (2)
