I mentioned to Mallory (who kindly showed me the items) about the invention of qPCR and the original apparatus. Upon leaving, I contacted the person involved in those early days (including the photo of myself with Mr Cycle) and he replied back about how Mr Cycle had been on the bench next to him when he joined Cetus. Unfortunately the original qPCR apparatus had been disbanded - as he wrote "It was really just a light stand, a camera, a thermocycler, a light source and a PCR brought together"
