Imagine that.

	I just got out of a meeting with the boss, during which time I showed
him a PCR that I ran using three primer pairs.  Now I see this note from some
one at the Terry Fox Cancer Res Labs asking if it can be done.  Yes.  It can.
I increased my NTPs so that they would not be limiting (I usually use NTPs near
a limiting reagent amount, because I'm incredibly cheap), and so I had to re-
optimise my Mg(2+) concentration, but it went fine.  My products were 800, 600
and 250 bp in size, but I imagine if your PCR products are the same size you
could probe strip and probe after transferring your PCR products from a gel.
