KiCqStart SYBR Green qPCR ReadyMix is a 2X concentrated, ready-to-use reaction cocktail that contains all components, except primers and template, for real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) This unique combination of proprietary buffer, stabilizers, and Hot-Start Taq DNA polymerase delivers maximum PCR efficiency, sensitivity, specificity and robust fluorescent signal using fast, or conventional, cycling protocols with SYBR Green qPCR.
Highly specific amplification is crucial to successful qPCR with SYBR Green I dye technology because this dye binds to and detects any dsDNA generated during amplification. Hot-Start Taq DNA polymerase is antibody mediated to be inactive prior to the initial PCR denaturation step. The optimized formulation includes SYBR Green I dye, an antibody-mediated Hot-Start Taq DNA polymerase, dNPTs, MgCl2 and proprietary buffers and stabilizers.
Different real-time PCR systems employ different strategies for the normalization of fluorescent signals and correction of well-to-well optical variations. It is critical to match the appropriate qPCR reagent to your specific instrument. KiCqStart SYBR Green qPCR ReadyMix, iQ contains fluorescein for experimental plate well factor collection on iCycler iQ real-time detection systems or the MyiQ detection system. Compatible instruments include:
- Biorad iCycler iQ®
- BioRad iQ™5
- BioRad MyiQ™
- Gene expression
- DNA quantitation

KiCqStart SYBR Green qPCR ReadyMix is stable for 1 year when stored in a constant temperature freezer at -20°C, protected from light. For convenience, it may be stored unfrozen at +2 to +8°C for up to 6 months. After thawing, mix thoroughly before using. Repeated freezing and thawing of the product is not recommended. However, the product demonstrated no loss of performance after 20 freeze-thaw cycles or 2 months at +20°C.
