Other names: Quantitative PCR, qPCR

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 Chemistry in 1993, 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]
