Abstract

The present disclosure provides a substantially sealed system and methods of use thereof for nucleic acid amplification. Said system includes, for example a base, a nucleic acid amplification reaction vessel, a collection cap, a storage cap and/or a housing. The system reduces contamination before, during and after the amplification reaction. Therefore said system reduces amplification of spurious nucleic acids or amplification products. The present disclosure also provides methods of amplifying nucleic acids using said system.

METHOD FOR INCREASING THE SPEED OF NUCLEIC ACID AMPLIFICATION REACTIONS

      
Application Number CA2008000310

  • Lem, Paul
  • Fournier, Sebastien
  • Ritz, Caitlin
  • Harder, Chris
  • Shayanpour, Alan

Abstract

The speed of a nucleic acid amplification reaction, such as the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), can be increased by setting the temperature of heat sources above and below the desired denaturation, annealing, and extension temperatures. The reaction mixture is only contacted with the heat sources long enough for the desired temperatures to be reached. A non-uniform temperature gradient is created from top to bottom, in the liquid, inside the reaction vessels.
