Reverse transcriptases

Invitrogen SuperScript IV VILO Master Mix is a first-strand cDNA synthesis reaction mix for two-step RT-qPCR. The master mix format elevates the trusted VILO technology (Variable Input, Linear Output) to the next level by combining further optimized buffer conditions with highly processive and thermostable SuperScript IV Reverse Transcriptase (RT). This master mix offers exceptional performance features while maintaining superior linearity across the broadest range of input RNA.

The High Capacity RNA-to-cDNA Kit is a streamlined reverse transcription kit designed for optimum performance with TaqMan Gene Expression Master Mix, PowerUp SYBR Green PCR Master Mix, and other PCR enzymes.

Oligos

Our custom DNA oligos are made to your specifications, with rigorous quality control and quick turnaround. They can be used in a variety of applications, including PCR, cloning, sequencing, and gene detection.
