Just use 3 heat blocks and a trained undergrad.....they can perform PCR with
this setup...nearly as well as Stratagene's Robocycler...

An undergrad is probably much cheaper than the Robocycler...and you don't have
to get the undergrad licensed to use PCR...well maybe you do....otherwise
Hoffman-LaRoche might sue the undergrad for Patent infringement....

Maybe the guy in egypt could patent the undergrad performing the task and then
sue everybody doing it this way...then he could make the funds to buy a
licensed machine.....

a stroke of genius!!!

Mullis eat your heart out....
