According to Dr. Joel Grover, Thermal Gradient has developed a 30-cycle PCR device that can amplify DNA in just 4.4 minutes, ready for point-of-care and point-of-use applications, the PCR protocol built into the chip. “We are now able to run reactions three times faster than we could just a few months ago,” Dr. Grover said, “and we are working on second-generation technology for the Department of Homeland Security. DHS hopes to use the extraordinary speed of our device to help with its mission. It brings the concept of lean thinking to the process of DNA testing. He envisions ” running DNA tests in minutes while the patient is being examined for infections like HIV, Hepatitis, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus or the multiple causes of sepsis. ” (Breakthrough in fast, disposable DNA testing Devices/Technology Published: Thursday, 9-Mar-2006)
It brings the concept of lean thinking to the process of DNA testing.
Oh to think of a line like that.
Me thinks here let me bring the concept of lean thinking to the process of sleeping, drift off for a while.
