Customer Notice: Please be sure to follow the primer concentration guidelines as specified in the User Guide. For example, if you are using SYBR® Select with a StepOne™ or StepOnePlus™ Real-Time PCR Instrument under Standard Mode, please use a primer concentration less than 200 nM. Also, for these two instruments, please note that new StepOne™ Software v2.3 is also available for download.

SYBR® Select Master Mix is a superior and cost-effective solution for your real-time PCR applications.

Features of the SYBR® Select Master Mix include:

• Specific—minimize primer-dimer and non-specific amplification
• Reproducible and sensitive—consistent amplification across a wide dynamic range
• Bright—contains SYBR® GreenER™ dye for maximum brightness
• Carry-over contamination control—contains heat-labile UDG
• Can be used in either standard or fast cycling mode

Formulated for Maximum Specificity
SYBR® Select Master Mix contains all the components needed for your real-time PCR reaction, except the template and primers, in a convenient 2X concentration premix. The master mix includes AmpliTaq® DNA Polymerase, UP, a highly purified DNA polymerase with a proprietary hot start mechanism that provides exceptional specificity.

Obtain Reproducible Results Across a Wide Dynamic Range
SYBR® Select Master Mix is specially formulated to provide robust results from 100 ng to 0.1 pg cDNA per reaction (Figure 1) and can reliably detect a single copy of genomic DNA (Figure 2).

Contains SYBR® GreenER™ Dye and Heat-labile UDG
• SYBR® GreenER™ dye is less inhibitory to PCR than SYBR® Green I dye resulting in brighter signals
• Heat-labile uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) is included for worry-free carryover contamination control

Instrument Compatibility
SYBR® Select Master Mix can be used in either standard or fast cycling mode and is compatible with all Applied Biosystems® real-time PCR instruments except the 7900HT real-time PCR system. It is also compatible with the Bio-Rad IQ™5, Roche LightCycler® LC480, and Stratagene® MX3005P® systems.
