General description

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.


KiCqStart® SYBR® Green qPCR ReadyMix has been used for the qPCR analysis of 16S rRNA.
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.
PCR applications:
  • Gene expression
  • DNA quantification
  • CHiP

Features and Benefits

  • Assay results in as little as 33 minutes
  • Highly efficient and sensitive real-time PCR results
  • Little/no optimization required


2X reaction buffer containing optimized concentrations of MgCl2, dNTPs (dATP, dCTP, dGTP, dTTP), KiCqStart Taq DNA Polymerase, SYBR Green dye, 20 nM fluorescein, and stabilizers

250 reactions* = 2 X 1.25 mL tubes
1250 reactions* = 10 X 1.25 mL tubes

*number of reactions based on a 20uL volume

Other Notes

Storage Conditions:
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.

PCR/qPCR Data Analysis

After a traditional PCR has been completed, the PCR/qPCR data analysis is conducted by resolution through an agarose gel or, more recently, through a capillary.

PCR Assay Optimization and Validation

PCR assay guide navigates you through primer validation and other assay optimization factors to ensure high sensitivity and specificity for optimum DNA/ RNA quantification.

Quantitative PCR Basics

Real-time polymerase chain reaction allows researchers to estimate the quantity of starting material in a sample. It has a much wider dynamic range of analysis than conventional PCR


KiCqStart™ Universal SYBR® Green qPCR Protocol

Quantitative PCR protocol using SYBR Green reagents. Procedure supports most qPCR instruments.

Primer Optimization Protocol Using Temperature Gradient

Gradient PCR for assay optimization is to determine the optimum annealing temperature (Ta) of the primers by testing identical reactions containing a fixed primer concentration, across a range of annealing temperatures.

qPCR Efficiency Determination Protocol

Once an assay has been optimized, it is important to verify the reaction efficiency. This information is important when reporting and comparing assays. In this example protocol, the assay efficiency is compared over a wide and narrow dynamic range of cDNA concentrations.

qPCR Gene Expression/Copy Number Analysis Protocol Using SYBR Green I Dye Detection

Measuring a target quantity relative to one or more stable reference genes using SYBR Green I dye detection is a common application of qPCR. Below is a standard protocol that can be adapted to specific experimental needs.
