Perkin Elmer (UK) has launched GeneAmp, the first complete in situ PCR system. The thermocycler can amplify up to 30 samples in a single run, using a vertical ten-slide block without mineral oils or adhesives. Perkin Elmer says the system has applications in neoplastic disorders, gene rearrangements, chromosome translocations and cell-specific gene expression and claims it will revolutionise molecular medicine, cancer research and applied genetics.
