Thumbs up for ease of use and output.
"I have been using kits from Bio-Rad and Thermo for reverse trancriptase. This kit from applied biosystems is rather easy to use as it has just the one master mix! So all you have to do is just add the DNA-free RNA sample and you are good to go, in an hours time you have the cDNA! Plus I could scale up without any problems! The quality is pretty good as well!"Review date:
05 Jul 2019 | High Capacity RNA-to-cDNA Kit
High Capacity RNA-to-cDNA Kit is a streamlined reverse transcription kit designed for optimum performance with the TaqMan® Gene Expression Master Mix, Power SYBR® Green PCR Master Mix and others. The components of the two-tube kit work together to provide sensitive and specific reverse transcription across a broad range of template quantities. The new High Capacity RNA-to-cDNA formulation reduces reverse transcription time by at least half, and requires fewer pipetting steps, compared with the classic High Capacity cDNA Reverse Transcription Kit, while maintaining similar high performance.
Easy workflow with few pipetting steps (2 tubes)
Short reaction time (0.5 – 1 h)
Reliable reverse transcription of abundant and limited targets
Optimized 2-step protocol enabling multiple PCR reactions from a single reverse transcription reaction
Optimized Formulation for Unrivaled Performance
TaqMan® RNA-to-cDNA Kit includes:
•20x Enzyme mix containing MuLV and RNase Inhibitor Protein
•2x RT Buffer mix containing dNTPs
The High Capacity RNA-to-cDNA Kit consolidates the components of the reverse transcription reaction into two tubes, 2x RT Buffer and 20x Enzyme mix, including RNase inhibitor. This enzyme-buffer system has been optimized to provide superior cDNA archiving for real-time gene expression analysis. The kit minimizes the number of reagent additions required, thereby decreasing the likelihood of pipetting errors.
Wide Dynamic Range
The High Capacity RNA-to-cDNA Kit provides dependable target quantification over a wide dynamic range. The amplification of a dilution series of the RNA concentration reference standard demonstrates exceptional reverse transcription and PCR efficiency across 11 orders of magnitude. This wide dynamic range allows one set of reaction conditions to capture both low expressing and high expressing genes.
Optimized RT Kits for TaqMan® Gene Expression Master Mix or Power SYBR® Green PCR Master Mix
The RNA-to-cDNA Kit also works well with the Power SYBR® Green PCR Master Mix in an integrated 2-step reverse transcription workflow with maximum sensitivity and dynamic range.
