Abstract

In this paper, we describe the use of a specialized molecular biology technique known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to allow rapid and systematic determination of bacterial contaminants in ultrapure water. PCR is a rapid enzymatic process involving repeated amplification of DNA sequences found within microbial cells. This amplification leads to easy identification of contaminating microbes or molecules.
