Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a method widely used in molecular biology to make several copies of a specific DNA segment. Using PCR, copies of DNA sequences are exponentially amplified to generate thousands to millions of more copies of that particular DNA segment.

PCR CFX96 - Bio-Rad

This appliance to amplify certain DNA sequences allows to precisely determine the biological origins of fibres and to ascertain whether a fibre has been genetically engineered or not

The DNA analysis is used to identify natural (vegetal and animal) fibres (hemp, flax, wool) and offers the industry a reliable and transparent method to detect fraud.


The CFX96 Touch System is a powerful, precise, and flexible real-time PCR detection system. This six-channel (five colors and one FRET channel) real-time PCR instrument combines advanced optical technology with precise temperature control to deliver sensitive, reliable detection for singleplex or multiplex reactions.
