FastLane Cell cDNA Kit
For high-speed preparation of cDNA without RNA purification for use in real-time RT-PCR
The FastLane Cell cDNA Kit provides a fast and simple procedure for preparing first-strand cDNA directly from cultured cells without RNA purification. The kit is supplied with wash and lysis buffers for preparing lysates and stabilizing RNA, gDNA Wipeout Buffer for eliminating genomic DNA contamination, and all reaction components for fast and efficient cDNA synthesis. The FastLane Cell cDNA Kit is ideal for experiments requiring rapid, high-throughput gene expression analysis.
cDNA synthesized by the FastLane Cell cDNA Kit enables highly sensitive and reproducible results in real-time two-step RT-PCR (see figures "Superior sensitivity in cancer research" and "Highly reproducible cDNA preparation"). The high quality of the cDNA also allows detection over a wide linear range from >105 cells down to one cell.
The FastLane Cell cDNA Kit uses FastLane technology to prepare cDNA directly from cultured cells in just 45 minutes. To ensure only RNA is detected in real-time RT-PCR, novel gDNA Wipeout Buffer is used to eliminate genomic DNA (see figure "Effective elimination of genomic DNA contamination"). Time and effort are saved as there is no need to design RNA-specific primers or probes.
When the FastLane Cell cDNA Kit is used together with optimized QuantiTect, QuantiFast, or Rotor-Gene Kits for real-time RT-PCR, several cell samples can be easily processed and analyzed within a few hours. This allows a snapshot of several transcripts in experiments such as validation of siRNA-mediated gene knockdown (see figure "Successful analysis of CDC2 knockdown").
The FastLane Cell cDNA Kit is part of the comprehensive range of FastLane Kits, which speed up and streamline the gene expression analysis workflow.
With the FastLane Cell cDNA Kit, cDNA is obtained from cultured cells in just 45 minutes in a 4-step procedure: cell wash; cell lysis with integrated RNA stabilization; genomic DNA elimination; and cDNA synthesis. The synthesized cDNA is ready to use in real-time two-step RT-PCR.
The kit contains sufficient reagents for preparing cDNA from two 24-well cell-culture plates or one 48-well cell-culture plate. If working with a 96-well cell-culture plate, an additional QuantiTect Reverse Transcription Kit (50) needs to be purchased.
cDNA prepared with the FastLane Cell cDNA Kit can be analyzed by real-time two-step RT-PCR using one of the following QuantiTect Kits:
Alternatively, fast real-time two-step RT-PCR can be carried out when the FastLane Cell cDNA Kit is used in combination with a QuantiFast Kit:
Ultrafast real-time two-step RT-PCR can be achieved when cDNA prepared with the FastLane Cell cDNA Kit is analyzed on the Rotor-Gene Q cycler using one of the following dedicated Rotor-Gene Kits:
QuantiTect and QuantiFast Kits are compatible with various real-time cyclers, including instruments from Applied Biosystems.
The FastLane Cell cDNA Kit is suitable for experiments which require a snapshot of individual transcript levels, such as:
