Do the master mixes in Rotor-Gene Kits contain dUTP to allow UNG pretreatment?

No. The master mixes in Rotor-Gene Kits contain dTTP instead of dUTP. If UNG treatment is required, we recommend using QuantiTect +UNG Kits. QuantiTect Kits are also compatible with the Rotor-Gene Q; however, the kits require a significantly longer cycling time.



FAQ ID -2117
If housekeeping and target genes differ significantly in abundance, will they both be amplified with equal efficiency using the Rotor-Gene Multiplex PCR Kit?

Yes. The optimized master mix of the Rotor-Gene Multiplex PCR Kit ensures that all gene targets in a multiplex reaction are amplified with the same efficiency and sensitivity as in corresponding singleplex reactions, independent of starting copy numbers.


FAQ ID -2129
Do tissue samples require pretreatment before loading onto the QIAsymphony SP for DNA extraction?
Yes. Samples have to be completely lysed and homogenized prior to automated processing on the QIAsymphony SP platform using the QIAsymphony DSP DNA Mini Kit. Tissue samples are lysed by proteinase K digestion. FFPE tissue samples are deparaffinized with Deparaffinization Solution or xylene/ethanol and lysed by proteinase K digestion. Insoluble material is pelleted by centrifugation. Lysates are placed on the QIAsymphony SP for purification of DNA (see protocol sheets for details).
FAQ ID -2926
Are probes other than TaqMan® probes, such as FRET probes, compatible with fast cycling with the Rotor-Gene Multiplex PCR Kit?

The Rotor-Gene Multiplex PCR Kit has been developed primarily for use with TaqMan® probes. Protocols for probes other than TaqMan® probes have not been tested.

FAQ ID -2130
What types of reaction vessels are required for use in the Rotor-Gene Q?

We strongly recommend use of the dedicated Rotor-Gene Q Accessories, e.g., PCR Tubes 0.2 ml or Strip Tubes and Caps 0.1 ml provided by QIAGEN. These tubes are designed to give low background and perfectly match the Rotor-Gene Q requirements.


FAQ ID -2085
How many samples can be run in parallel with the Rotor-Gene Q real-time PCR instrument?

The Rotor-Gene Q instrument can be used with two different rotor formats: using tubes or rotor-dics. Tubes can be run in 36 and 72-well rotors and rotor-discs in Rotor-Disc 72 and Rotor-Disc 100 rotors. When programming the temperature profile please make sure the correct rotor type is selected.  



FAQ ID -1519
What real-time cycler should I use for my qPCR experiments?
There are several manufacturers of high-quality real-time cyclers. These include QIAGEN's Rotor-Gene Q, Applied Biosystems, BioRad, Stratagene, Eppendorf, Roche, TaKaRa, Fluidigm, and Cepheid. The important thing to keep in mind is that, once you select an instrument to use, you must use compatible Rotor-Gene Discs and tubes, 96 or 384 well plates, and qPCR master mixes that are optimized for use in that particular instrument.  For example, QIAGEN's Rotor-Gene SYBR Green, Probe, and Multiplex real-time master mixes.  
FAQ ID -2670
Are Rotor-Gene Kits compatible with reaction setup using the QIAgility instrument?

The majority of the Rotor-Gene Kit data shown in our literature has been generated with the help of the QIAgility instrument. We did not observe any problems during the pipetting steps.


FAQ ID -2116
What are the main differences between Rotor-Gene and QuantiTect or QuantiFast PCR Kits?

Rotor-Gene Kits are specifically developed for the Rotor-Gene Q PCR Cycler. The unique rotary system of the cycler combined with the kits’ proprietary buffer system enable ultrafast cycling. Rotor-Gene Kits do not contain ROX dye since no normalization to a passive reference is required. Also, Rotor-Gene Kits do not contain dUTP; therefore, UNG pretreatment is not possible.


FAQ ID -2119
Why have the hazard symbols accompanying products changed?
The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is an initiative by the United Nations aiming to harmonize chemical hazard communication worldwide. Hazards symbols accompanying products are changing to those of the GHS. Information on the adoption of this new system is available on our GHS Hazard Labeling pages.
