Q1: Are the contents of the PCR kits ready to use?
A1: BioinGentech PCR Kits contain all components to run a real time PCR: master mix, RNA/DNA mix, primer, probes, negative control, and positive control. For RNA kits, Internal control for RNA isolation also is included. The kits can be used immediately on arrival.
Note that we no longer include extraction kits.
Q2: Which internal control is used?
A2: In order to protect our developments, we can’t give details about the gene used for internal control, but it detects the presence of RNA/DNA in isolated samples, and it indicates a successful isolation.
Q3: Do I need a RNA/DNA extraction kit?
A3: Yes. BioinGentech no longer includes extraction kits with their kits, so each user can use their preferred extraction method with our kits.
Q4: Which gene do the PCR kits target?
A4: We cannot share that information.
Q5: Which thermal cycler can be used with the kits?
A5: BioinGentech PCR kits can be used on various real time thermocyclers available on the market. Please check our manual with the compatible platforms.
Q6: Do BioinGentech kits need a special laboratory setup?
A6: Yes, a laboratory with a real time PCR thermal cycler for One-Step kits, and a classic thermal cycler for End Point PCR kits.
