cDNA Synthesis Kits

INTRODUCINGThe Reliance Select cDNA Synthesis Kit

Overcome challenging RT-qPCR samples in a single assay.


Reverse transcription is a crucial step for gene expression studies, sequencing, cloning, and other applications. Optimization of this step is a priority to researchers to ensure the best results downstream. We offer a variety of cDNA synthesis kits to meet researchers' needs, including high fidelity or dealing with challenging samples, difficult targets, and rare or long transcripts.
