Description

Description

Maxima First Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit for RT-qPCR is a convenient system optimized for cDNA synthesis in 2-step quantitative RT-PCR (RT-qPCR) applications. The kit uses Maxima Reverse Transcriptase (RT), an advanced enzyme derived by in vitro evolution of M-MuLV RT. The enzyme features high thermostability, robustness and increased cDNA synthesis rate compared to wild type M-MuLV RT.

The Maxima First Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit for RT-qPCR is capable of reproducible cDNA synthesis from a wide range of total RNA amounts (1 pg to 5 µg) at elevated temperatures (42 to 65°C).The synthesis reaction can be completed in 15 to 30 minutes. Components of the Maxima First Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit for RT-qPCR are pre-mixed to save time and to reduce the possibility of pipetting errors.

The new Maxima First Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit with dsDNase provides a dramatically simplified workflow that combines genomic DNA elimination and cDNA synthesis into one-tube procedure. The kit contains a novel double-strand specific DNase (dsDNase) engineered to remove contaminating genomic DNA from RNA preps in 2 minutes without damage to quality or quantity of RNA. Highly specific activity towards double-stranded DNA ensures that single-stranded DNA (such as cDNA and primers) is not cleaved and dsDNase treated RNA can be directly added to reverse transcription.

The kit uses Maxima Reverse Transcriptase, an advanced enzyme derived by in vitro evolution of M-MuLV RT. The enzyme features high thermostability, robustness and increased cDNA synthesis rate compared to wild type M-MuLV RT. The contents of the kit include the Maxima Enzyme Mix, 5X Reaction Mix and Water, nuclease-free. Maxima Enzyme Mix contains Maxima Reverse Transcriptase and RiboLock RNase Inhibitor. The recombinant RiboLock RNase Inhibitor effectively protects RNA templates from degradation by RNases A, B and C at temperatures up to 55°C. 5X Reaction Mix contains the remaining reaction components: reaction buffer, dNTPs, oligo (dT)18 and random hexamer primers. Water, nuclease-free is provided for reaction set-up and dilution of sample RNA. The absence of endo-, exodeoxyribonucleases, ribonucleases and phosphatases has been confirmed by appropriate quality tests.
  • Sensitive and reproducible cDNA synthesis from a wide range of total RNA amounts (1pg to 5µg)
  • Increased synthesis rate—complete cDNA synthesis in 15 minutes
  • Increased reaction temperature—up to 60°C
  • Convenient format—premixed solutions for use in RT-qPCR

Recommended for:

Two step RT-qPCR.
