The Evolution of PCR

Since polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, was conceived in 1983, Roche has invested in and developed PCR into what it is today.

This innovative, Nobel-prize winning, technology allows clinicians to diagnose infectious disease, detect genetic variations and mutations, or track down the source of a viral infection – all from the DNA or RNA contained in a single cell or patient sample such as blood, skin cells, saliva or hair.
