OpenPCR – DNA Copying

Tito Jankowski, Co-creator, OpenPCR and Co-founder, BioCurious hackerspace

Tito builds tools for anyone who wants to play with DNA. OpenPCR is an affordable DNA copy machine the size of a toaster used in labs around the world. The portable thermocycler has a heated lid and connects to your PC or Mac. Really! Everyone needs one! Here Tito demonstrates how it functions to copy DNA. This demo was part of “Physical Prototyping in Health 2.0 – Maker 2″ panel at the 2011 Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco.
