SCRIPT RT-qPCR SybrMaster with highROX is designed for quantitative real-time analyses of RNA templates using the fluorescent DNA stain SYBR® Green. The ready-to-use mix is based on a genetically engineered reverse transcriptase with enhanced thermal stability providing increased specificity, high cDNA yield and improved efficiency for highly structured and long cDNA fragments.
The 2x conc. mix contains all reagents required for RT-qPCR (except template and primers) allow fast and easy preparation with a minimum of pipetting steps. The premium quality enzymes and the optimized reaction buffer ensure superior real time PCR results.
RT-qPCR is used to amplify double-stranded DNA from single-stranded RNA templates to allow a rapid real-time quantification of RNA targets. In the reverse transcription step the reverse transcriptase synthesizes single-stranded DNA molecules (cDNA) complementary to the RNA template. In the first cycle of the PCR step the hot-start DNA polymerase synthesizes DNA molecules complementary to the cDNA, thus generating a double-stranded DNA template. The hot-start polymerase activity is blocked at ambient temperature and switched on automatically at the onset of the initial denaturation. The thermal activation prevents the extension of non-specifically annealed primers and primer-dimer formations at low temperatures during PCR setup.
One-step RT-qPCR offers tremendous convenience when applied to analysis of targets from multiple samples of RNA and minimizes the risk of contaminations.

SYBR® Green fluorescent DNA stain:
SYBR® Green fluorescent DNA stain is a superior DNA intercalator dye specially developed for DNA analysis applications like real-time PCR (qPCR). Upon binding to DNA, the non-fluorescent dye becomes highly fluorescent while showing only lowest inhibition to the PCR process. The dye is stable both thermally and hydrolytically, providing convenience during routine handling.
ROX reference dye:
The SCRIPT RT-qPCR SybrMaster with highROX contains 500 nM ROX passive reference dye in the final assay. The dye does not take part in the PCR reaction but allows to normalize for non-PCR related signal variation and provides a baseline in multiplex reactions.
Targets can generally be detected from <1 pg to 20 ng poly(A) RNA (mRNA) or 10 pg to 1 μg total RNA. Even lower amounts of RNA may be successfully amplified by using highly expressed transcripts.
Add the following components to a nuclease-free microtube. Pipett on ice and mix the components by pipetting gently up and down. In general, water, RNA and primers should be mixed together before the remaining components are added.

For optimal specificity and amplification an individual optimization of the recommended parameters may be necessary. Note that optimal reaction times and temperatures should be adjusted for each particular RNA / primer pair.
