(Figure Presented) Is that a PCR in your pocket? An innovative thermocycling system is presented that harnesses natural convection to perform rapid multiplex and long-target DNA amplification by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The design is inherently simple and consumes minimal electrical power, enabling a pocket-sized battery-powered device to be constructed at a cost of approximately US$10. © 2007 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
