Protocols

qPCR Using a Single Detection Probe Protocol

A protocol that can be used as a basic template for qPCR incorporating a detection probe that is specific to a single target. In these reactions, primers and probe are included at a final concentration of 200 nM and are run using LuminoCt® ReadyMix™.
