SuperScript IV First-Strand Synthesis System

The SuperScript™ IV First-Strand Synthesis System for RT-PCR is optimized for synthesis of first-strand cDNA from purified poly(A)+ or total RNA.

The SuperScript IV First-Strand Synthesis System contains all components needed for RT reactions, plus an additional control gene and primers, and provides the flexibility to customize the RT set-up to fit the needs of your application.

Features of the SuperScript IV First-Strand Synthesis System include:

  • Significantly improved resistance to a variety of inhibitors that can interfere with cDNA synthesis
  • Robust and specific cDNA synthesis in a wide range of sample types
  • A faster reverse transcriptase reaction that reduces incubation time from >50 min to 10 min
  • Significantly better processivity compared to SuperScript™ III RT
