PCR Biosystems Clara qPCR Reagent Mixes

PCR Biosystems has launched three Clara qPCR reagent mixes: Clara Probe Mix, Clara Probe 1-Step Mix, and Clara HRM.

The Clara Probe Mix is a concentrated 4x mix for single and multiplex assays that enables detection of DNA targets down to 1 pg/ml of cDNA. The mix can be used for melt-curve analysis and is available in No-ROX, Lo-ROX, Hi-ROX, and separate-ROX options. The Clara Probe 1-Step Mix is a single tube 4x RT-qPCR mix for universal probe-based detection of RNA and DNA targets in single and multiplex assays. The Clara HRM Mix uses SyGreen 2 dye with a 2x qPCR mix and can be used to detect genetic mutations, identify genotypes based on SNPs, or calculate percent methylation of a target region. It is compatible with many standard qPCR thermocyclers.
