QuantiNova LNA PCR Focus Panels
For in-depth pathway- or disease-specific gene expression analysis using LNA-enhanced, SYBR® Green-based PCR
QuantiNova LNA PCR Focus Panels enable quick and reliable gene expression analysis of over 150 pathways each for human, mouse or rat using SYBR® Green-based qPCR. LNA enhancement enables us to design shorter primers with optimal Tm, allowing flexible positioning on the target for optimal sequence discrimination. Thorough design validation ensures top performance and robust detection. Optimized using QuantiNova chemistry, the simple workflow can be completed in just 2 hours and is robust enough to support room-temperature setup, automation and delayed run. We also offer Flexible Panels, which are semi-customizable from the assays in our Focus Panels, as well as Custom Panels with your choice of predesigned and/or custom assays.

During the early release offering, only the human and rat focus panels will be available. The mouse focus panels will be released in April 2020.
QuantiNova LNA PCR Focus Panels are intended for molecular biology applications. These products are not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
Expert LNA enhancement for top qPCR performance
The assays in the QuantiNova LNA PCR Focus Panels have been developed using stringent design criteria and lab-validated algorithms. Twenty years of LNA design experience has enabled us to optimize our sophisticated LNA design algorithm, which incorporates over 50 different parameters to guarantee the most optimal assay for successful target detection. Each primer set delivers the highest specificity and efficiency for the most reliable and accurate results. LNA enhancement enables Tm normalization across the panel and gives the primers higher binding affinity, dramatically increasing assay sensitivity and specificity.
The increased sensitivity ensures excellent amplification efficiencies down to 1 RNA molecule, making it easier for you to detect low-abundance targets such as lncRNAs from less starting material (see figure QuantiNova LNA PCR Assays provide accurate, sensitive and linear quantification of targets over a wide dynamic range and figure QuantiNova LNA PCR Assays enable both high-expression and low-expression detection of mRNA). Increased specificity from the clever placement of LNA gives you a high signal-to-noise ratio, allowing discrimination of sequences that differ by only a single nucleotide and eliminating non-specific amplification and primer-dimer formation.
The high binding affinity of LNA bases increases the flexibility of primer placement on the transcript, so we are able to use intelligent positioning to design assays for otherwise difficult-to-analyze targets. This gives you robust and reliable quantification, even for AU-rich targets, low-abundance transcripts, targets with high secondary structure and highly complex samples.
High-performance SYBR® Green-based detection
QuantiNova LNA PCR Focus Panels use SYBR® Green-based detection, which, when used with a highly specific PCR system, well-designed primers and optimized reaction conditions, offers several advantages over hydrolysis probe detection. First, it is possible to perform melting curve analysis immediately following the PCR, so you can confirm high specificity of the reaction and rule out formation of primer–dimers or non-specific amplicons. It also provides higher flexibility in the assay design, because you only need two primers, instead of two primers and a probe. Furthermore, while the primers ensure the specificity of the detection, the dye’s binding properties enable analysis of many different targets without having to synthesize target-specific, labeled probes, reducing your assay setup and running costs.
Most comprehensive and specific coverage
QuantiNova LNA PCR Focus Panels include the assays needed for a thoroughly researched panel of relevant pathway- or disease-focused genes. The predesigned assays have been designed using our proprietary algorithm to provide the most sensitive, accurate and effective analysis. Most of the assays are intron-spanning when possible and detect only RNA. Assays that do not span an intron are designated as such, and if there is one exon in the target, unwanted signals can be easily eliminated using the QuantiNova Reverse Transcription Kit with the integrated gDNA removal step.
Flexible layout and controls
QuantiNova LNA PCR Focus Panels are available in 96-well plate, 384-well plate and 100-well disc formats and are used to monitor the expression of 84 genes related to a disease state or pathway, plus multiple reference genes. Each Focus Panel includes control elements for the following:
Multiple plate discounts
Complimentary data analysis
The complimentary, web-based data analysis tool in the GeneGlobe Data Analysis Center includes a user-friendly wizard to guide you step-by-step through the normalization and analysis of your data and generates publication-ready results figures.
Choose one- or two-step qRT-PCR
QuantiNova LNA PCR Focus Panels have been optimized using the time-tested and high-performance QuantiNova chemistry. Best results are obtained when reverse transcription is performed with the QuantiNova Reverse Transcription Kit. The resulting cDNA is then quantified by qPCR using the master mixes of the QuantiNova SYBR® Green PCR Kit combined with the assays on your panel.
For one-step qRT-PCR, we recommend using the QuantiNova SYBR® Green RT-PCR Kit, which offers quick reaction setup without need for optimization of reaction conditions. Simply combine RNA template with the ready-to-use RT-PCR master mix and the assays on your panel and start the reaction.
Fast and easy workflow
The fast and easy workflow can be completed in just 2 hours with minimal hands-on time and can be automated to save even more time and labor. The simple protocol has been tested for compatibility on all major brand qPCR cyclers (see figure QuantiNova LNA PCR Assays deliver consistent performance across all thermal cycler instruments). Furthermore, the cDNA generated in the RT step can be used across the entire QuantiNova LNA PCR System, allowing seamless transition from assays to panels depending on your research needs, saving you time and sample.
