Perform both cDNA synthesis and PCR amplification in a convenient one-step formulation. Our One-Step RT-PCR Kits contain dNTPs and a mixture of reverse transcriptase and thermostable hot-start DNA polymerase in an optimized reaction buffer. Just add your RNA sample and gene-specific primers, and start your reactions.
