Next-generation qPCR reagents designed to complement fast-cycling instruments
Get the turnaround time you want with the data quality you need.

EXPRESS qPCR SuperMix Kits incorporate proven Invitrogen enzymes now specifically tailored to deliver superior results with probe-based qPCR assays on high-throughput, fast-cycling instruments. These kits provide:

• Fast-activating, antibody-mediated Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase - complete, rapid activation provides the best sensitivity and reproducibility (Figure 1)
• Flexible formats with ROX premixed or separate - designed to work with default instrument protocols on a wide range of high-throughput fast instruments (e.g., AB 7500 Fast, AB 7900 HT Fast, AB StepOne, Roche LightCycler® 480, Corbett Rotor-Gene™) (Figure 2)
• Significantly reduced carryover contamination with UDG carryover protection - uracil-DNA-glycosylase (UDG)/dUTP incorporated in all kits (Figure 3)

Easy to test and switch

EXPRESS kits work with manufacturer’s default protocols on fast instruments and include a convenient and stable SuperMix format for the ultimate convenience. The kits are offered with either premixed ROX or a separate tube of ROX to fit your instrument needs.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
