The Ambion® MAXIscript® T3 In Vitro Transcription Kit synthesizes RNA probes in just 10 minutes for use in ribonuclease protection assays, in situ hybridization, and blot hybridizations. Each kit contains sufficient reagents for 30 reactions.


• High yields of high specific activity, full-length RNA probes in just 10 minutes
• Ideal probe synthesis kit for nuclease protection assays, northern and Southern blots, and in situ hybridization
• Includes TURBO DNase™
• All kits contain quality-tested DNase/RNase-free reagents

The MAXIscript® In Vitro Transcription Kit synthesizes RNA probes with specific activities reaching 1 × 109 cpm/µg in just 10 minutes. MAXIscript® Kits are very efficient at synthesizing full-length probes, even at limiting nucleotide concentrations, making them the perfect companion to ribonuclease protection assays. MAXIscript® Kits are also an excellent choice for the synthesis of nonisotopically labeled probes. Labeling can be accomplished post-transcriptionally by using Ambion's BrightStar® Psoralen-Biotin Labeling Kit, or during transcription by incorporating modified nucleotides into the reaction. MAXIscript® Kits can also be used for the synthesis of modest amounts of unlabeled RNA (2–6 µg/20 µl reaction) of up to 2 kb.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
