Nobel Prize Laureate Kary B. Mullis was the inventor of the polymerase chain reaction technique, which is analyzed in this article.
Dr. Kary B. Mullis, who passed away on August 7, 2019 at age 74, stated emphatically that no infection or illness can be accurately diagnosed with the PCR-RT.
“PCR is a Process. It does not tell you that you are sick. … The measurement is not accurate”.
Mullis described the PCR-RT as a “technique” rather than “a test”.
It is a useful technique which allows for “rapid amplification of a small stretch of DNA”.
