Maybe we've been watching too many CSI reruns, but NEC's mobile DNA lab looks awesome. Not only does it bring portability to DNA analysis, but it even improves upon the typical versions. To complete its barrage of tests takes about 25-minutes &mdash and, by comparison, a typical DNA lab would take an entire day. NEC achieved this by significantly decreasing the time it takes to heat and cool the DNA sample during PCR amplification. And just think, if this thing takes off, the old "Lets send this back to the boys at the lab" line could finally be laid to rest. [Pink Tentacle]
