Universal cDNA

Introduction to Universal cDNA

BioChain’s Universal cDNAs are premade first strand cDNAs that can be used to amplify a gene of interest by using gene-specific primers. Our Univeral cDNAs are an ideal tool for amplifying previously isolated, structurally related, or cross-species cDNAs. Use this product to directly amplify a cDNA of interested while avoiding traditional library construction and screening. Universal cDNA serves as a standard for comparison of gene expression by real time PCR and regular PCR, and also as a gene pool for cloning genes.

In order to obtain good results from PCR amplification a high-quality cDNA template is needed. Our Universal cDNAs are synthesized from our premium, high-quality RNA that is DNA-free, and is reverse transcribed using random hexamer or oligo dT primers.

Features

  • High purity cDNA

  • Great tool for amplifying previously isolated, structurally related, or cross-species cDNAs
  • Made from diversified tissues for broad gene coverage
  • Industrial production scale to minimize lot-to-lot variation
  • High quality with no genomic DNA contamination
  • Applications

  • Gene pool for cDNA cloning
  • Controls for real time or regular PCR
