The CellsDirect™ One-Step qRT-PCR Kit delivers highly sensitive and specific real-time qPCR results directly from cells, without the need for an RNA purification step.

Features of the CellsDirect™ One-Step qRT-PCR Kit include:

Efficiency—offers significant time and cost savings for increased throughput
Convenience—enzyme mix includes both SuperScript® III Reverse Transcriptase and Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase
Sensitivity—no separate RNA isolation step increases sensitivity by minimizing sample loss
Broad detection range—detect targets from samples ranging from a single cell to 10,000 cells
Versatility—compatible with a wide variety of cell lines and samples collected by Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM)

Streamline your workflow
In traditional real-time quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR), you first isolate RNA from cells in a time-consuming procedure that can lead to loss of material. Using the CellsDirect™ One-Step qRT-PCR Kit, you lyse the cells and add the complete lysate directly to a one-step qRT-PCR reaction with minimal handling and sample loss.

Ideal for your qRT-PCR application
CellsDirect™ technology is validated for gene expression studies involving limited samples. CellsDirect™ One-Step qRT-PCR Kits are especially valuable for high-throughput applications by eliminating costly, time-consuming RNA purification steps (see figure). The CellsDirect™ One-Step qRT-PCR Kit may also be used to detect genomic DNA targets. CellsDirect™ One-Step qRT-PCR Kits may be used in conjunction with hydrolysis probes (e.g., TaqMan® or LUX™ fluorogenic primers).

Note: This kit includes a separate tube of ROX™ Reference Dye. An equivalent kit (11754-100) with ROX™ Reference Dye included in the 2X Reaction Mix is also available.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
