Reference genes are used in relative gene expression analysis to normalize for variation in the amount of input messenger RNA (mRNA) between samples. For accurate quantitation, it is important to use one or more reference genes that are shown not to change expression as a result of the experimental treatment or condition. To aid in this, we have suggested a set of commonly used reference genes that can be used individually, easily screened using our pre-plated 96-well and 384-well reference panels, or added to custom designed plates.

Control assays are designed to aid in assessing the key experimental factors that may be impacting your real-time PCR results.
DNA Contamination Control Assay
The PrimePCR DNA contamination control assay is designed to determine if genomic DNA (gDNA) is present in a sample at a level that may affect PCR results. The assay may also be used to compare relative levels of gDNA contamination present in different samples to determine if PCR results may be affected.
Positive PCR Control Assay
The PrimePCR positive control assay is designed to qualitatively assess the performance of a PCR reaction associated with a single sample. The assay may also be used to compare the relative performance of the PCR reactions associated with different samples.
RNA Quality Assay
The PrimePCR RNA quality assay is designed to determine if RNA integrity may adversely affect PCR results of a single sample. The assay may also be used to compare the relative RNA integrity between different samples in order to determine if PCR results may be affected.
Reverse Transcription Control Assay
The PrimePCR reverse transcription control assay is designed to qualitatively assess the performance of the reverse transcription reaction associated with a single sample. The assay may also be used to compare the relative performance of the reverse transcription reactions associated with different samples.
