AccuPower® Dual-HotStart™ RT-qPCR PreMix & Master Mix

Ordering Information

AccuPower® Dual-HotStart™ RT-qPCR PreMix is a one-step RT-PCR product that applied Pyro-Hotstart RT technology and Hotstart PCR technology to substantially improve the problems of non-specific reverse reaction and enhance the sensitivity to effectively undergo reverse transcription of template RNA even if it is present in a miniscule amount. Moreover, this product is compatible with comprehensive types of devices, including Exicycler™ 96 and those from other companies, by providing optimized tube and plates, along with a 2X master mix type.

Dual-HotStart™ Technology

  • 1st hotstart reaction: Hostart RT
    It uses a unique enzyme-mediated HotStart method that provides robust, sensitive, and reliable cDNA synthesis results. Bioneer's RocketScript™ reverse transcriptase is completely inhibited by pyrophosphate at temperatures below 50°C. However, RocketScript™ reverse transceiptase becomes fully active at temperatures above 50°C via pyrophosphate hydrolysis with a thermostable pyrophosphatease. This prevents the formation of mis-primed products and primer-dimers during the reaction set up process resulting in improved specificity of cDNA systhesis.

  • 2nd hotstart reaction: HotStart PCR & qPCR
    Bioneer's HotStart Taq Polymerase provides superior priming accuracy and specificity that cannot be achieved with other enzymes. You will use less enzyme per reaction, save money, and get higher sensitivity than with other HotStart enzymes.

Features and Benefits

  • Specificity
    The world's first Dual-HotStart™ RT-qPCR reaction using PyroHotStart RT reaction and HotStart PCR optimized to detect only the target gene precisely.
