PCR testing continues to be in the spotlight as a reliable way of screening for COVID-19 and other viruses in patients. Its amplification process enables it to detect small portions of genetic material in these viruses. But PCR can be also used for a broad range of additional applications.

We detailed a few of them in a blog post earlier this summer. Take this quiz to see how much you remember—or already know—about these lesser-known applications.

Given PCR’s versatility and applicability to so many important areas, we can expect to see a growing range of uses that will yield even more benefits in the future.
