Integrated DNA RhAmp SNP Genotyping Solution

Integrated DNA Technologies has launched its rhAmp SNP Genotyping system to enable researchers to make quick, confident, and cost-effective SNP calls. The system is a single-tube assay that uses a unique RNase H2/DNA polymerase two-enzyme system coupled with RNA-DNA hybrid primers to eliminate non-specific amplification. It also uses primer dimer formation, can be fully automated, and is designed to work on all leading commercially available qPCR platforms.
