Overview

Performance

iScript RT-qPCR sample preparation reagent generates linear results over varying input cell amounts. HeLa cells were treated with each reagent (125, 25, 5, and 1 cells/µl) according to the recommended guidelines and analyzed for GAPDH expression levels using iScript cDNA synthesis kit and iQ SYBR® Green supermix on the CFX96 real-time PCR detection system. iScript RT-qPCR sample preparation reagent delivers excellent efficiency and reproducibility for the detection of GAPDH from cell extracts. GAPDH efficiency = 94.4%, R2 = 0.996. RFU, relative fluorescence units.

PureZOL RNA Isolation Reagent

iScript RT-qPCR sample preparation reagent generates earlier threshold cycles (CTs) compared to PureZOL RNA isolation reagent. HeLa cells were treated with each reagent (125, 25, 5, and 1 cells/µl) according to the recommended guidelines and analyzed for GAPDH expression levels using iScript cDNA synthesis kit and iQ SYBR® Green supermix on the CFX96 real-time PCR detection system. iScript RT-qPCR sample preparation reagent delivers earlier CTs and comparable efficiencies to PureZOL treatment. Average CT values for triplicate reactions are shown for each dilution point (inset tables). RFU, relative fluorescence units.

iScript™ RT-qPCR sample preparation reagent provides a simple and rapid procedure (<10 min) for isolating total RNA from cultured cells to use for RT-qPCR. This reagent delivers efficient cell lysis and RNA stabilization for sensitive qPCR without traditional RNA sample preparation.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Have ease of use and simplicity — one-buffer formulation contains all of the necessary components to perform cell lysis and RNA stabilization in 5–10 min
  • Benefit from superior compatibility with qPCR directly from cells — sensitive detection of high-, medium-, and low-copy gene targets directly from cell lysates using real-time qPCR when combined with iScript reverse transcription and qPCR reagents
  • Maximize data from very few cells — reagent enables multiplex real-time detection of up to 4 targets from as few as 10 cells
  • Extend isolated RNA shelf-life — isolated RNA is stable for up to 6 months when frozen
  • Use with different cell types — compatible with both suspension and adherent cell cultures
Storage at –20°C Guaranteed for 12 months at –20°C in a constant temperature freezer (multiple freeze thaws not recommended)
