PCR & qPCR
Eurogentec offers two kinds of control for your quantitative PCR assays: housekeeping controls and positive controls. Positive controls are available as Internal Positive Control (IPC) or Sample Processing Control.
Control Housekeeping controls
Housekeeping controls allow normalization of gene expression studies. We have developed a limited set of optimized and validated housekeeping controls.
Custom Housekeeping controls
You can request a custom design for any reference gene for normalization of gene expression.
Internal positive controls
The Internal Positive Control (IPC) is spiked into samples before qPCR assay to confirm the absence of target sequence, inhibition or a reaction set-up/cycling error.
Sample processing controls
The Sample Processing Control (SPC) is spiked into samples before extraction to monitor poor extraction yield, PCR inhibition, incorrect pipetting or cycling parameters.
