During a PCR reaction, it is imperative for the DNA polymerase to remain attached to the template while extending the new strand. This association is jeopardized under challenging PCR conditions and when amplifying longer DNA fragments. See how Sso7d, a small protein capable of binding with the polymerase, helps in stabilizing this association and increasing PCR efficiency.
A qPCR workflow involves multiple steps, each of which adds to the time and cost of the entire experiment. The PrimePCR™ Assays and Panels from Bio-Rad eliminate a number of these steps with their predesigned primers and probes and help with the assay design. See what steps they eliminate and how that would help expedite your qPCR experiment.
Too Many Questions, Too Little Sample: Developing a Real-Time PCR Workflow for Monitoring Gene Expression in Limited Samples
Traditional real-time PCR workflows often limit the number of genes that can be studied, especially when sample amounts are small. A new workflow now allows Mark Kibschull of the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute in Toronto to track the expression of hundreds of genes using a fraction of the starting material required by traditional methods.
Better, Faster, and Less Expensive Gene Expression Analysis Using Multiplex One-Step RT-qPCR: A Case Study of Colorectal Cancer
Conducting a triplex one-step RT-qPCR assay promises a more efficient and economical analysis of gene expression compared to running three individual assays. This technical report describes a colorectal cancer case study where a triplex multiplex assay was validated.
