KiCqStart SYBR Green qPCR ReadyMix is a 2X concentrated, ready-to-use master mix 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.
2X reaction buffer containing optimized concentrations of MgCl2, dNTPs (dATP, dCTP, dGTP, dTTP), KiCqStart Taq DNA Polymerase, SYBR Green dye, and stabilizers
250 reactions* = 2 X 1.25 mL tubes
1250 reactions* = 10 X 1.25 mL tubes
5000 reactions* = 1 X 50 mL tube
*number of reactions based on a 20uL volume
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.
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 SYBR Green qPCR ReadyMix does not contain an internal reference dye. Compatible instruments include:
