KiCqStart Probe qPCR ReadyMix is an advanced qPCR reagent system for both fast and conventional PCR cycling protocols or instruments. It is a versatile and robust solution that provides the ultimate sensitivity and high PCR efficiency using a variety of fluorogenic probe chemistries, including TaqMan® hydrolysis probes. KiCqStart Probe qPCR ReadyMix is provided as a 2X concentrated ready-to-use reaction cocktail that contains all required reaction components, except primers, probe(s), and DNA template. The light blue color of an inert tracer dye simplifies reaction assembly in white, or clear, plates and helps to minimize pipetting or mixing errors. It does not interfere with qPCR performance or affect the stability of the product.
A key component of KiCqStart Probe qPCR ReadyMix is an ultra-pure, processive thermostable DNA polymerase that is free of detectable E. coli DNA§. KiCqStart Probe qPCR ReadyMix is ideal for demanding qPCR applications such as bacterial pathogen detection where residual host DNA in typical recombinant enzyme preparations can limit assay sensitivity and obscure detection of low copy samples. The enzyme in KiCqStart Probe qPCR ReadyMix is combined with high avidity monoclonal antibodies to provide a stringent automatic hot-start that allows reaction assembly, and temporary storage, at room temperature prior to PCR amplification.
Different real-time PCR systems employ different strategies for 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 One-Step Probe RT-qPCR ReadyMix does not contain an internal reference dye. Compatible instruments include:
