One for All — The Universal qPCR Reagent

Passive reference dyes are included in qPCR/RT-qPCR supermixes to compensate for pipetting errors and thermal and/or optical differences in real-time instruments. Our universal line of reagents eliminates the need for spiking in dyes or having to worry about how much ROX your instrument needs. See how your qPCR experiments can also generate more reliable data and be reproducible by anyone.

Defining the New Normal in Quantitative Western Blot Data

Normalization of western blot data is very crucial in quantitating proteins. Normalization of band intensity of proteins of interest with the band intensity of housekeeping proteins (HKP) is routinely done in labs. But more and more journals question the validity of using HKPs in normalization and are demanding more validations and tests. An alternative method is to use total protein normalization (TPN) for normalization. Explore the TPN option and see how you can get reliable western blot data easily.
