GEN NEWS: New Products – cDNA Synthesis Kit

The RTScript™ is a cDNA Synthesis Kit that allows users to produce robust cDNA yields in as little as 30 minutes. This kit is a modified version of M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase with RNase H activity deactivated and increased thermal stability. These characteristics render it sensitive, specific, and capable of synthesizing highly structured and long cDNA fragments. The RTscript cDNA Synthesis Kit has also been optimized to offer high reproducibility and efficiency for a broad range of primers and templates. The kit contains all the reagents necessary for first strand cDNA synthesis including RNase-free water, ultrapure dNTPs, oligo (dT) primers, random hexamers, control RNA, and RNase inhibitor.

LAB BULLETIN: Empirical Bioscience’s TAQ DNA Polymerase Labeling Extended to Include Long Term Refrigeration and Room Temperature Storage

This product improvement is the result of ongoing optimization work at Empirical Bioscience’s new manufacturing facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Tests conducted by the company show that their TAQ DNA Polymerase, a recombinant Taq, exhibits no detectable loss of function when stored and used under these conditions.

What’s more, the new storage and usage conditions also allow for easier and more accessible use in laboratories. There is no thaw time required and no need to access deep freeze facilities which are often remote from the testing site. These new capabilities also make the product more compatible with high volume, automated test facilities which benefit from having the enzyme and other reagents supplied in larger volumes for direct use with automated testing equipment.

“Our TAQ DNA Polymerase has been extremely well received by the molecular biology community since it was introduced,” said Des O’Farrell, President of Empirical Bioscience. “Now that they can use it instantly and more easily, they will appreciate it even more. It also allows Empirical Bioscience to service the growing commercial testing and biotechnology markets better,” he added.

Empirical Bioscience produces high-grade PCR reagents and enzymes in its ISO 13485 certified facility.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(GRAND RAPIDS, MICH)—June 1, 2016— Empirical Bioscience announced today that they have introduced RTScript™, a cDNA Synthesis Kit, that allows users to produce robust cDNA yields in as little as 30 minutes.

The RTScript cDNA Synthesis Kit is a modified version of M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase with RNase H activity deactivated and increased thermal stability. These characteristics render it sensitive, specific, and capable of synthesizing highly structured and long cDNA fragments. The RTscript cDNA Synthesis Kit has also been optimized to offer high reproducibility and efficiency for a broad range of primers and templates. Tests conducted by Empirical Bioscience show that its yield is comparable to competitors.

Convenience and flexibility are other advantages this kit brings to the table. It contains all the reagents necessary for first strand cDNA synthesis including RNase-free water, ultrapure dNTPs, oligo (dT) primers, random hexamers, control RNA, and RNase inhibitor. It is very competitively priced and offers more to the user than competitive products.

“We are so pleased to be able to offer this kit,” said Des O’Farrell, President of Empirical Bioscience. “Our RTScript cDNA Synthesis Kit contains everything researchers need to perform a reaction without having to buy the reagents separately,” he added.
