The High Capacity cDNA Reverse Transcription Kit contains all components necessary for the quantitative conversion of up to 2 µg of total RNA to single-stranded cDNA in a single 20 µL reaction. The High Capacity cDNA Reverse Transcription Kit delivers extremely high-quality, single-stranded cDNA from 0.02 to 2 µg total RNA. Reactions can be scaled up to 100 µL to generate 10 µg of cDNA from a single reaction. Downstream applications include real-time PCR, standard PCR, and microarrays. The kit is ideal for generating cDNA archives.

Features of this kit include:

• Linear target amplification for real-time PCR
• Higher yields and precision than other cDNA synthesis kits at a fraction of the cost
• 10-fold greater dynamic range than other kits

Extensively tested with a variety of templates
Quantitative first-strand synthesis of all RNA species is achieved with the use of the random primers. The kit has been extensively tested with a variety of RNA templates, including GC- and AU-rich targets and RNAs expressed at low levels. cRNA can also be efficiently generated from in vitro transcription of cDNA.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
