genesig® RT PCR Kits

Over 600 RT PCR Lyophilised (freeze fried) kits for human, vet, food pathogens, food speciation testing and Biothreat detection - compatible with all qPCR instruments.

Each kit includes its own:
     • Positive and Negative control
     • Extraction control (to confirm the success of the extraction process),
     • Endogenous control (to confirm the quality of the biological sample)
     • Resuspension buffers and default FAM/VIC channels.

All genesig® RT PCR Kits are highly specific, sensitive (to <100 copies of target) and offer a broad dynamic detection range (>6 logs).
