77.6.6 Sample cooling and subsequent PCR
If sensitive samples should remain cooled until the PCR takes place, the
thermoblock must be preheated. This
can be carried out in two ways:
7.6.3 Touch Down PCR
The temperature increment, which can be programmed as desired with every
temperature command, allows the temperature to be reduced or increased by
a defined value with every cycle.
7.6.5 PCR "Fingerprinting" (RAPD-PCR)
Variable heating and cooling rates, which can be programmed as desired with
each temperature command,
enable the temperature-control speed to be aligned to the temperature.
7.6.2 Hot Start PCR
The "Pause" command is used to interrupt the program. The most-recently
entered temperature is
maintained. A text explaining the reason for the interruption may be entered
as required. Aft...
