Overview

Duplex qPCR under Challenging Conditions
Duplex qPCR under Challenging Conditions

Duplex qPCR under challenging conditions. cDNA from human liver (100 ng) was used in each 20 µl reaction to amplify GAPDH (VIC-labeled probe) and IL-2 (FAM-labeled probe) in simplex (, tubulin; , IL-2) and duplex () reactions using iTaq™ universal probes supermix on a CFX96™ real-time PCR detection system. There are no significant differences in quantification cycle (Cq) values in the detection of a low-expressing gene (IL-2) in a simplex or duplex reaction in the presence of a high-expressing gene (GAPDH). RFU, relative fluorescence units.

Reliable and Reproducible Gene Expression Analysis
Gene Expression Analysis

iTaq™ universal probes supermix is excellent for gene expression analysis. The human β-actin gene was amplified from HeLa cDNA (100 ng–100 fg) using FAM-labeled probes on a CFX96™ real-time PCR detection system. iTaq universal probes supermix produced a β-actin efficiency of 94.3% over 6 orders of linear dynamic range. Standard curve R2 = 0.999, slope = –3.47. RFU, relative fluorescence units.

Sensitive and efficient gene expression analysis on any real-time PCR instrument. The β-actin gene was amplified from HeLa cDNA (100 ng–100 fg) using iTaq™ universal probes supermix and FAM-labeled probes on several real-time instruments. A, Bio-Rad® CFX96™ real-time PCR detection system; B, Bio-Rad® iQ™5 real-time PCR detection system; C, ABI 7900 real-time PCR system; D, ABI 7500 fast real-time PCR system; E, ABI ViiA7 real-time PCR system; F, ABI StepOnePlus real-time PCR system. This supermix showed excellent β-actin efficiencies, R2, and slopes on all platforms (>90% efficiency, R2 > 0.990, slope between –3.20 and –3.58). RFU, relative fluorescence units.
