You shouldn’t have to be a genius or rich person to explore the world of DNA science. The miniPCR is a tiny PCR machine that can be operated from a smartphone. It is a useful teaching tool for bio-technology students. You can even perform DNA analysis with it at home. Since the device is app-controlled, you can use your smartphone to create and understand DNA science, program, and share DNA experiments.
You can use the miniPCR to see how DNA is inherited from each parent, whether your food is safe, or even test for GMOs in your food. The companion software lets you program and monitor PCR conditions in real-time and export your data. It is compatible with Android, Mac, and Windows machines. You can get yours for $399 if you are an early Kickstarter supporter.
