The analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and short tandem repeats (STRs) has proven extremely valuable in both healthcare and forensic sectors. Such analyses have historically been time-consuming, laborious and confined to specialist analytical laboratories. The HyBeacon probe technology presented here provides a rapid method for the detection and identification of specific nucleic acid sequences, which could be employed away from the laboratory in primary healthcare and certain forensic settings. © 2006.
