  • In molecular diagnostics, a process by which multiple copies of genetic material (RNA, DNA) are generated to produce adequate levels of the target to detect or quantify.
  • The process by which the signal from a detection system is increased to improve detection or quantification of an analyte of interest, such as genes or drugs.
  • When there is more than the normal number of copies of a gene or genes in a cell, such as in tumor cells, the gene is said to be amplified.
