Invitrogen: Aug 10, 2006

Invitrogen has recently introduced the SYBR GreenER qPCR reagent kits.
According to the company, the kits are designed for use in “assays that detect gene expression levels, validate microarray data, and verify gene knockdown from RNAi experiments, among other applications.”
The reagents feature a double-stranded DNA binding dye with an excitation/emission spectrum nearly identical to SYBR Green dye, Invitrogen said. However, the reagents produce brighter fluorescence and less PCR reaction inhibition.
