Thermally baffled device can reduce the environmental influence on convective PCR amplification: Convective PCR is extremely sensitive to environmental temperature fluctuations, and is inherently unstable with limited applications. In this study the authors have designed a thermally baffled convective PCR device with thermal baffles, which significantly reduces the influence from environmental temperature fluctuations, while PCR amplification is carried out successfully in a short reaction time. With its simple design the thermally baffled PCR instrument can provide a powerful tool for point-of-care molecular diagnostics in the field.
