£5 can pay for 13 ‘DNA duplicators’ which is a key piece of lab equipment. The DNA that makes up our genes is the blueprint our cells use to build our bodies. Understanding our genes is absolutely essential in understanding the causes of the diseases of the brain that lead to dementia. To do this, researchers need to be able to analyse DNA in the lab. These precious DNA samples are often incredibly small. However, researchers can use a ‘DNA duplicator’ to help copy the DNA strands, giving researchers larger samples to study.
