SYBR™ Select Master Mix offers advanced performance at an affordable price.

  • Specific - minimize primer-dimer and nonspecific amplification with a highly purified DNA polymerase with a proprietary hot start mechanism
  • 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
  • Broad instrument compatibility - compatible on most Real-Time PCR instruments

SYBR Select Master Mix outperforms the competition with respect to:

  • Specificity - specific amplification for 100% of assays
  • Brightness - optimum brightness for high performance on most Real-Time PCR instruments
  • Dynamic range - more tolerant to high input cDNA
  • Sensitivity - true single copy detection as demonstrated with digital PCR
Exceptional specificity

Out of 44 assays and 3 independent replicate reactions only SYBR Select Master Mix had a single peak in all the melt curves (100% specificity).

Brightness that is just right

SYBR Select is brighter than the majority of competitor master mixes, but not too bright to upset some Real-Time PCR instruments.
