In order to generate relevant, accurate and reliable qPCR results, you should always include carefully selected controls in your qPCR experiment!
> NTCs (No Template Controls)
> No RT enzyme controls in qRT-PCR experiments
> Endogenous controls stable in the experimental protocol in the context of gene expression studies (housekeeping controls)
> Positive controls for diagnostic PCRs. See our IPC (RT-IPCY-xxxx) & SPC (RT-SPCY-xxxx) controls.
Universal Exogenous qPCR positive Control for Qualitative validation (IPC & SPC):
Real-Time PCR assays are prone to inhibition by various substances found in many samples (clinical, soil, plant…). Carryover of reagents used for the isolation of nucleic acids can also inhibit amplification reactions. Other causes of false-negative results include target nucleic acid degradation, sample processing errors and thermocycler malfunction. Eurogentec’s Universal Exogenous qPCR positive Control provides an accurate way to assess the integrity of all the steps in a nucleic acid amplification assay.Use this control to:
> Distinguish true target negatives from false negatives
> Monitor loss or degradation of your target during extraction
> Assess the quality of your nucleic acids extracts
Controls based on reference genes for Quantitative normalization (house keeping controls):
Our qPCR Housekeeping Control kits cover the whole relative expression range, from low expression level to very high expression level. Each set has been functionally validated and optimised to a PCR efficiency of 95-100 %, when combined with Eurogentec qPCR MasterMixes and Core kits.
These control kits have been designed to work with cDNA. Moreover some also work with gDNA. Please refer to this table to find out more about their specifications.
Our 18S rRNA Yakima Yellow qPCR control kits have been designed to work with cDNA. It is also available with a FAM-TAMRA® labelled probe. Moreover it also works with gDNA. The 18S rRNA qPCR control kits contain enough reagents for up to 250 - 50 µl reactions using Human, rat, mouse or rabbit cDNA. The 18S rRNA qPCR control kits contain 18S primer mix, 18S FAM-TAMRA probe and Human genomic DNA tubes.
This control has a very high relative expression level.
Request your design for any other selected control gene not available as a catalogue item by sending us your gene details Controls are also available with other dyes & quencher pairs. Contact us for more information
