High-performance reagents for quantitative, real-time RT-PCR
miRCURY LNA RT Kit
This kit includes all the necessary reagents to perform fast and convenient miRNA polyadenylation and reverse transcription in a single reaction step. Using a single, universal RT reaction as the template for subsequent PCR amplifications greatly simplifies the procedure compared to systems that require miRNA-specific, first-strand synthesis (see figure The benefit of a universal reverse transcription step
). The UniSp6 RNA spike-in can be used with the control assay – UniSp6 miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR Assay (cat. no. YP00203954) – as a reverse transcription positive control and/or as an inter-plate calibrator in our miRNA PCR panels.
miRCURY LNA SYBR Green PCR Kit
This kit contains the high-performance miRCURY SYBR Green Master Mix for quantitative real-time PCR amplification. The detection is based on SYBR Green, which allows quality control of the resulting PCR amplicon by melting curve analysis. LNA-enhanced primer sets require specific PCR reaction conditions for optimal performance. The kit also includes a control primer set designed for amplification of the synthetic RNA spike-in provided in the miRCURY LNA RT Kit. Refer to the miRCURY LNA RT Kit Handbook
for details. The miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR Assays and Panels have been validated using the miRCURY SYBR Green Master Mix; use of other reagents for qPCR will affect the results.
