The SuperScript One-Step RT-PCR System with Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase is designed for the convenient end-point detection and analysis of RNA molecules by RT-PCR. This system combines RT/ Platinum Taq Mix and 2X Reaction Mix. The RT/ Platinum Taq Mix contains a mixture of SuperScript II Reverse Transcriptase and Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase. The 2X Reaction Mix consists of a proprietary buffer system optimized for reverse transcription and PCR amplification, Mg2+ optimized for universal use, deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates, and stabilizers. All components for cDNA synthesis and PCR are combined in a single tube with gene-specific primers and target RNA. Reverse transcription automatically follows PCR cycling without additional steps.

Note: For superior one-step RT-PCR performance, we recommend the SuperScript IV One-Step RT-PCR System or SuperScript IV One-Step RT-PCR System with ezDNase. The SuperScript IV One-Step RT-PCR System combines the high processivity of SuperScript IV Reverse Transcriptase with the high-fidelity of Platinum SuperFi DNA Polymerase to provide unmatched product yields, specificity, and sensitivity in less time and for a broad target range, even with suboptimally pure RNA samples.
