PCR-based Assay Regulations and Validation
While many PCR assays are developed for research applications there are further considerations for those that are being developed to become diagnostic assays or to be performed in support of: Biologics License Application (BLA), New Drug Application (NDA), Premarket Approval
RT-PCR / RT-qPCR Troubleshooting
Developing a PCR or RT-PCR/RT-qPCR troubleshooting protocol so that data are reliable is essential. Potential sources of RT-PCR or PCR error and problems include operator error, the PCR master mix, and oligo design. This PCR troubleshooting guide outlines and details
Using Probe-Based Quantitative PCR (Qpcr) to Measure Gene-Level Expression
Quantitative PCR (qPCR) provides information about gene expression, gene amplification or loss, and small alterations. qPCR is often used to investigate tumor biology and to discover the genetic and epigenetic causes of cancer
KiCqStart® SYBR® Green Primers FAQ
The primer pairs have been designed to detect the most prevalent one for each eukaryotic gene based on a literature review. However, it is possible that the primer pairs may co-amplify other transcripts.
Molecular Beacons
Molecular Beacons are structured probes that are highly sensitive, sequence specific, and are used for sequence detection in qPCR and in vitro studies.
Multiplex qPCR with JumpStart™ Taq ReadyMix™ for Quantitative PCR
Method outlines use of a hot start Taq for multiplex qPCR and provides guidance on how to optimize dNTPs, primer, probes and MgCL2 concentrations. By optimizing these parameters, the user can improve assay sensitivity and linear range of detection.
Oligonucleotide Quantification
DNA absorbs ultraviolet light due to its highly conjµgated nature. DNA may thus be easily quantitated in a UV spectrometer.
