Product News Aug 28, 2009
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., has just launched a new educational tool - the Thermo Scientific QPCR Optimization & Troubleshooting Guide.
Simply bringing together all the necessary components for QPCR is often not enough to obtain accurate and consistent results. Following a protocol that instructs users how to combine the template with reagents before running them on instrument only covers the basics of real-time PCR.
The guide aims to educate researchers that are new to the technique to better understand the science of real-time PCR. It should enable them to develop their skills in troubleshooting and optimization, the company says.
The Thermo Scientific QPCR Optimization & Troubleshooting Guide provides a quick reference to help you achieve the best results possible on a consistent basis. The Optimization section of the guide covers parameters such as choice of plate, amplicon size, primer design, and it makes recommendations to optimize QPCR performance. Whilst in the troubleshooting section, problems, possible causes and remedial actions are addressed.
