We will soon be starting to use PCR, hopefully for rapid identification of
bacteria in a diagnostic lab. Can anyone point me towards information about lab
layout to minimise product contamination and useful equipment eg positive
displacement pipettes, air displacement pipettes with barrier tips etc. Any
practical advice or cautions?

Thanks in advance
