Sensitive Codetection of Viral-Pathogen RNA and DNA
Using One-Step Multiplex RT-qPCR

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.
