amplicon

(1) Any PCR amplification product.
(2) A segment of DNA to be amplified (e.g., in PCR).
(3) Any fragment of replicating DNA produced by natural or artificial amplification events.

amplicon

(am′plĭ-kon″)
An amplified segment of specific DNA or RNA sequences in which multiple copies of the nucleic acid sequences are found. Amplicons can be made during polymerase chain reactions or may occur spontaneously, e.g., in the nucleic acid content of certain organisms or tumors.

amplicon

nucleic acid product generated by a nucleic acid amplification technique, such as the POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION, from a target DNA or RNA segment.
