Each Hot Start Taq-based Luna qPCR master mix has been formulated with a unique passive reference dye that is compatible across a wide variety of instrument platforms, including those that require a ROX reference signal. This means that no additional components are required to ensure machine compatibility. The mixes also contain dUTP, enabling carryover prevention when reactions are treated with NEB’s Antarctic Thermolabile UDG (NEB #M0372). A blue visible dye assists in tracking the reagents when pipetting into clear, multi-welled PCR plates. The reverse transcriptase, featured in the Luna RT-qPCR products is a novel, engineered WarmStart® enzyme developed for robust performance and increased thermostability. These features, combined with rapid, sensitive and precise real-time qPCR performance, make Luna the universal choice for all your qPCR and RT-qPCR experiments.
For two-step RT-qPCR, the LunaScript™ RT SuperMix Kit offers a fast (less than 15 min), robust, and sensitive option for cDNA synthesis upstream of your Luna qPCR experiment. The supermix contains a blue tracking dye allowing you to easily track your samples throughout the RT-qPCR workflow.
