Sigma KEE - RTPCRTest
RTPCRTest(Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction)

appearance as argument number 1

(documentation RTPCRTest EnglishLanguage "Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) is a laboratory technique combining reverse transcription of RNA into DNA (in this context called complementary DNA or cDNA) and amplification of specific DNA targets using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). It is primarily used to measure the amount of a specific RNA. This is achieved by monitoring the amplification reaction using fluorescence, a technique called real-time PCR or quantitative PCR (qPCR). Combined RT-PCR and qPCR are routinely used for analysis of gene expression and quantification of viral RNA in research and clinical settings.[from Wikipedia]") Medicine.kif 1560-1569
