I think a method for quantitative PCR is what you're asking
about.  The 2 major systems being marketed for this is
Applied Biosystems "TaqMan" technology and Roche's Light
Cycler technology.  You can find more info on the Roche web
site at http://193.197.95.198/instrume/lightcyc/index.htm
and you can find more info on the Applied Biosystems web
site at
http://www.appliedbiosystems.com/molecularbiology/about/pcr/sds/
.  (no affiliation with either company)
