Why can I not find the QuantiTect Primer Assay in GeneGlobe that I had previously ordered from QIAGEN?

The QuantiTect Primer Assay may have been renamed. Since we only use official gene names from Entrez to name our QuantiTect Primer Assays, names are subject to change in case an update occurs at NCBI's Entrez data base. 

For example, Hs_GYG was officially renamed by Entrez to Hs_GYG1, so we changed the name of the Primer Assay accordingly:

Hs_GYG_1_SG QuantiTect Primer Assay was renamed Hs_GYG1_1_SG QuantiTect Primer Assay.

Performing a search in GeneGlobe using the gene symbol for the gene of interest should retrieve the corresponding QuantiTect Primer Assay with the new name. To find the original name, click on the link to the assay and look under 'Other names' on the 'View Details' page.
