ONE OF THE SECRETS of ET's ground-breaking field DNA studies of illegal
whalemeat is the wonderfully miniaturaized equipment which makes it all possible.
Here we see an MJ Research Labs MiniCycler on the right, compared in size to a regular-sized
DNA polymerase amplifier. Not only does it look like something out of "Star Trek", but
the firm donated the first machine used - without knowing what we needed it for. Kudos to
MJ Research for having the technology and the
faith to make one of our breakthroughs possible.
