Foster City, California-based Applied Biosystems has given Eppendorf AG worldwide, royalty-bearing patent rights to its real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) thermal cyclers. The agreement, of which financial details were not disclosed, allows the Hamburg, Germany-based systems and research tools developer to manufacture and sell the instruments in the research and applied fields. Real-time PCR enables amplified DNA to be detected during, rather than at the end of, the PCR process.
