Like other members of the Cells-to-CT™ product family, the Cells-to-CT™ 1-Step TaqMan™ Kit makes it possible to perform expression analysis directly from cultured cells without RNA purification.

This new addition to the family includes a TaqMan™ 1-Step RT-PCR master mix. The single-tube format of the RT-PCR step streamlines the “sample to answer” workflow more than ever. Combining the simple Cells-to- CT™ lysis technology with the fast cycling capability of the 1-step RT-PCR master mix allows quicker time to results with limited sample handling.

The Cells-to-CT™ 1-Step TaqMan™ Kit is:
• Complete—optimized workflow includes cell lysis reagents with gDNA removal and TaqMan™ 1-Step RT-PCR Master Mix
• Faster than ever—7-minute sample prep, including DNase treatment, combined with a 28-minute real-time RT-PCR step allows for ∼35 minute sample-to-answer workflow
• Simple—10 steps total (sample prep and real-time RT-PCR combined)
• Robust—perform gene expression analysis on 10–100,000 cells per sample; results equivalent to those from purified RNA
• Convenient—contains sufficient reagents to perform 5 real-time RT-PCRs for each cell sample you prepare; this allows you to study multiple targets or perform replicate RT-PCRs

Note: TaqMan™ primer/probe sets are sold separately.

Simple 7-minute Sample Preparation, Then Ready for Real-time RT-PCR
Whether you are using plates or tubes, the Cells-to-CT™ 1-Step TaqMan™ Kit uses a simple 7-minute sample preparation procedure. The lysis technology is designed for 10–100,000 cultured cells/sample. Cells are washed in PBS and lysed in solution for 5 minutes at room temperature with a simultaneous DNase treatment. Lysis is terminated at room temperature by a 2-minute incubation with Stop Solution. The lysate is now ready to analyze on your real-time PCR instrument. Simply add it to a real-time RT-PCR master mix containing the TaqMan™ primer/probe sets of interest. Alternatively, the lysate can be stored at –20°C. Because samples can be processed directly in culture wells (96 or 384 wells), sample handling and the potential for sample loss or transfer error are minimized, facilitating rapid, high-throughput processing. Unlike old-fashioned, multi-step RNA isolation protocols, no heating, washing, or centrifugation steps are required. The kit greatly simplifies a laborious 30–60 minute process and reduces it to 7 minutes.

A Complete, Validated Solution
All components of the Cells-to-CT™ 1-Step TaqMan™ Kit have been optimized for consistent and reliable performance. This removes the guesswork involved in assembling separate sample preparation and real-time 1-step RT-PCR master mixes. For added quality assurance, the Cells-to-CT™ 1-Step TaqMan™ Kit has been validated with TaqMan™ Gene Expression assays and shows performance equivalent to that obtained with purified RNA.

Accessory Product
The TaqMan™ Cells-to-CT™ Control Kit was designed for use with TaqMan™ Cells-to-CT™ products. This kit contains an endogenous control (ACTB) to normalize for sample loading variability and an artifical XenoRNA™ control and corresponding TaqMan™ Gene Expression assay to monitor the effects of PCR inhibition.
