Using PrimeScript Reverse Transcriptase to detect low levels of RNA
In many circumstances, low levels of RNA can close a lot of doors from an experimental perspective. Certain cell and tissue types have inherently low amounts of RNA. In other cases, it can be difficult to detect trace amounts of viral RNA in host samples for pathogen research, or certain RNAs of interest such as pre-miRNAs and long non-coding RNAs can be present at low copy numbers.
In situations like these, the efficiency and sensitivity of your reverse transcriptase are critical. Watch the videos below to learn more about how PrimeScript Reverse Transcriptase can help you detect low levels of RNA—even in very challenging situations.
Part 1: Low levels of RNA can close doors. PrimeScript Reverse Transcriptase is the key to opening them. Watch the video to see how.
Part 2: See how scientists have used PrimeScript Reverse Transcriptase to analyze low levels of RNA.
