MegaPlex PCR – Massively Mulplexed PCR.

Megaplex PCR has been developed to overcome the above limitations by combining surface-phase and solution-phase reactions.

About University of Leicester
The University of Leicester works hand in hand with industry to generate business growth and find real applications for its leading innovation and research.


The main application for the MegaPlex technology developed by University of Leicester researchers, is in medium scale genomic analysis (such as targeted Next Generation Sequencing, high-plex genotyping, and sample identification/fingerprinting) in areas such as biomedical research, clinical diagnostics, agricultural/livestock quality control, and environmental monitoring. These are all large markets, for example the in vitro diagnostics market is expected to reach $16.38Bn globally, with rapid growth between 2013 to 2023, with molecular diagnostics already representing 18% of the >$10Bn IVD market in Europe alone in 2014.
