Can the QuantiTect Whole Transcriptome reaction be stopped after the reverse transcription step to proceed with the ligation and amplification steps at a later time?
FAQ ID -1618

Yes, this is possible. The reverse transcription reaction can be stored at -20°C.  We recommend not to store the ligation reaction longer than overnight at 4°C before proceeding to the next step in the protocol.

For convenience, all incubation steps of the QuantiTect Whole Transcriptome protocol can be pre-programmed on a thermal cycler.
