MISSION® siRNA Universal Negative Controls are an essential component to any siRNA experiment. Using a Negative siRNA control allows the researcher to create a baseline for mRNA knockdown efficiency. MISSION siRNA Universal Negative Controls have been tested in human, rat, and mouse cells. All have carefully designed to have no homology to known gene sequences.
Benefits of MISSION Universal Negative siRNA Control:
For most siRNA experiments we recommend MISSION siRNA Universal Negative Control 1. Universal Negative Control 2 can also be used as an additional control or as an alternative to Universal Negative Control 1.
