RT-qPCR is a well-established method for the detection, quantification, and typing of different microbial agents. However, when dealing with the challenges of pathogen detection, not all RT-qPCR reagents are created equal. See how we used a novel one-step multiplex RT-qPCR supermix to demonstrate sensitive codetection of viral RNA and DNA targets in a multiplex setting.
Using RT-qPCR for RNA, though critical in several industries, is often met with challenges. Many current options don’t allow for multiplexing or high-throughput operation. Bio-Rad’s new Reliance One-Step Multiplex Supermix was designed to grant researchers the expanded, efficient capabilities they need in RT-qPCR. This article presents some of the performance data from the new supermix and describes how exceptional it is at multiplex detection.
