Why does the QuantiTect Primer Assay for my gene of interest have only one version number?

Although there may have been sequence updates in Entrez and/or Ensembl which serve as the basis for our QuantiTect Primer Assay design, the assay still matches the amplified region. Therefore, there is no need to design a new assay.

The version number of an assay appears in the assay name as in the following example:

Hs_LTA_2_SG QuantiTect Primer Assay (200)

Hs:       human

LTA:     lymphotoxin alpha (TNF superfamily, member 1)

2:         assay version 2

SG:      assay is for SYBR Green based real-time RT-PCR

(200):   200 x 50 µl reactions
