Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Net is a piece of software used to monitor and control GeneAmp PCR 9700 instruments. These instruments, in turn, are used to amplify DNA samples. Amplified DNA samples can be analyzed and then used in forensic analysis, gene sequencing, and genetic defect determination. Our team is enhancing PCRNet by improving the user interface, extending the error logging capabilities, and enabling core features of the application to be run across a local network.
