Sygnis One Step Reverse Transcriptase-PCR Kit

Sygnis has announced the global launch of SunScript one-step reverse transcriptase PCR Kit. The high-temperature one-step kit is based on the combination of SunScript Reverse Transcriptase RNaseH- and high-quality Taq polymerase for the reverse transcription and PCR amplication of specific RNA fragments. The kit's enzymes provide an improved thermal stability for the RT step, allowing temperatures of up to 85 degrees Celsius resolving even the most complicated RNA structures to obtain a faithful picture of the original genetic information accompanied by high yields of DNA in the amplification step. Additionally, the kit has exquisite sensitivity, a high reproducibility of reactions, the ability to amplify difficult RNAs with complex secondary structures, and easy single-step handling, said Sygnis in a statement.
