General description

Optimized one-tube procedure for the synthesis of double-stranded cDNA up to 3 kb from total RNA or mRNA.
The cDNA Synthesis System uses an optimized one-tube procedure, based on the method of Gubler and Hoffmann.
Sample: 1 - 20 μg total RNA, 0.3 - 2 μg mRNA
Assay time: 60 minutes for 1st strand synthesis, 120 minutes for 2nd strand synthesis
Product: double-stranded cDNA copy of an RNA sample


Optimized one-tube procedure for the synthesis of double-stranded cDNA from total RNA or mRNA.
The ds cDNA can be used for the construction of non-directional cDNA libraries, as a starting point for substractive hybridization experiments to enrich differentially expressed genes, and for the in vitro transcription of whole cDNA populations to generate labeled cRNA for hybridization on DNA microarrays.

RT-qPCR – Quantitative Reverse Transcription PCR

RT-qPCR, or quantitative reverse transcription PCR, combines the effects of reverse transcription and quantitative PCR or real-time PCR to amplify and detect specific targets. RT-qPCR has a variety of applications including quantifying gene expression levels, validating RNA interference (RNAi), and detecting pathogens such as viruses.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
