Rapid detection in all cell types
AllStars Mm/Rn Cell Death Control siRNA is highly effective in all mouse/rat cell types tested, including primary cells (see table). AllStars Mm/Rn Cell Death Control siRNA can be used confidently with virtually any mouse or rat cell type. There is no need to search for a new control when working with a new cell type or moving experiments from cell lines to primary cells.
Examples of cell lines tested
|Mouse and rat cell line examples||Cell type|
|NIH/3T3 ||Mouse embryonic fibroblast cells|
|B16 ||Mouse melanoma cells|
|L6 ||Rat myoblast cells|
|C6 ||Rat glioma cells|
Most extensively characterized RNAi controls
AllStars Mm/Rn Cell Death Control siRNA significantly outperforms other commercially available toxic control siRNAs in both the level of cell death induced and in the range of cell types in which they are effective. Results from positive control experiments should always be compared with results from negative control experiments. As a negative control, QIAGEN recommends AllStars Negative Control siRNA, which is the most extensively validated negative control siRNA currently available.
