RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays
For lncRNA expression analysis by pathway and disease using laboratory-verified SYBR® Green qPCR assays
RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays combine real-time PCR performance and a panel of long noncoding RNAs related to a disease state or biological pathway to deliver sensitive, specific lncRNA profiling. These arrays are especially suited for researchers who prefer RT-PCR technology and require the capacity to study the expression of multiple lncRNAs at once.
RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays are intended for molecular biology applications. These products are not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays are panels of RT2 lncRNA qPCR Assays for long noncoding RNAs related by pathway or disease. Assays are designed using a computer algorithm which has been developed using an in vitro assay to ensure that the resulting primer sequences generate a single PCR product of the predicted size without primer-dimers or off-target amplification in 33 cycles of PCR amplification. The assay also ensures that the amplification efficiency of the primers is 100 +/– 10%. As a result, the algorithm designs highly effective primer sequences for SYBR Green based real-time PCR detection.
For optimal performance, RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays should be used together with the RT2 First Strand Kit for cDNA synthesis and RT2 SYBR Green Mastermixes for qPCR. These reagents have been formulated and pretested together with RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays. The RT2 First Strand Kit includes a proprietary genomic DNA elimination step to remove any residual contamination in RNA samples before reverse transcription, thereby eliminating false positive signals. In addition, an artificial RNA control template is also included which can be used to follow the reverse transcription efficiency across samples and monitor against RNase contamination. Each of the real-time instrument-specific RT2 SYBR Green Mastermixes contains SYBR Green and an appropriate reference dye to match the instrumentation available in your laboratory. RT2 SYBR Green Mastermixes are available for all real-time PCR instruments from QIAGEN, Applied Biosystems, Bio-Rad, Stratagene, Eppendorf, Roche, and other major suppliers.
Simply mix the cDNA template with the appropriate ready-to-use PCR mastermix, aliquot equal volumes to each well of the same plate, and then run the real-time PCR cycling program. RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays are compatible with all QIAGEN, ABI, Bio-Rad, Eppendorf, Roche, and Stratagene instruments.
Flexible layout and controls
RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays are available in 96-well plate, 384-well plate, and 100-well disc formats, and are used to monitor the expression of 84 lncRNA genes related to a disease state or pathway, plus 5 reference genes. Each RT2 lncRNA PCR Array also includes control elements for:
Easy-to-use data analysis
Data can be analyzed using an easy-to-use Excel-based data analysis template or Web-based software. Data analysis is based on the ΔΔCq method with normalization of the raw data to either housekeeping genes.
RT2 lncRNA PCR Arrays are highly suited for biomarker studies and other studies that require simultaneous, sensitive analysis of lncRNA expression.
