Thermo Fisher Scientific Invitrogen TaqMan & SYBR Green Fast Advanced Cells-to-CT Kits

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched Invitrogen TaqMan & SYBR Green Fast Advanced Cells-to-CT kits for real-time RT-PCR. The kits allow for a faster reverse transcriptase reaction and use a qPCR master mix system that is optimized to improve sensitivity to detect rare transcripts. They are designed for high-throughput gene expression analysis directly from cultured cells without RNA purification. The kits contain updated reverse transcription reagents for cDNA synthesis and faster TaqMan or SYBR Green master mixes for real-time PCR analysis.
