The PCR Song: Bio-rad Promoting MTV

These Americans are really creative and funny, no wonder their leadership in tech and economy. I like the designs and quality of Bio-rad’s products for a long time. But this time they totally shocks me, this song is so… so amazingly funny and meaningful.

The whole idea is to promote their new PCR machine -1000 Series Thermal Cyclers. But the song, the chorus, is like the We are the champions s**t or something like that.

Man, I don’t know to say nothing.

Here is the lyrics, hope ya’ll like that,

The PCR Song

There was a time when to amplify DNA,

You had to grow tons and tons of tiny cells.

Then along came a guy named Dr. Kary Mullis,

Said you can amplify in vitro just as well.

Just mix your template with a buffer and some primers,

Nucleotides and polymerases, too.

Denaturing, annealing, and extending.

Well it’s amazing what heating and cooling and heating will do.


PCR, when you need to detect mutations.

PCR, when you need to recombine.

PCR, when you need to find out who the daddy is.

PCR, when you need to solve a crime.
