Dye-based quantitative PCR (qPCR) uses real-time fluorescence of a double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) binding dye, most commonly SYBR® Green I, to measure DNA amplification during each cycle of a PCR. At a point where the fluorescence signal is confidently detected over the background fluorescence, a quantification cycle, or Cq value, can be determined. Cq values can be used to evaluate relative target abundance between two or more samples, or to calculate absolute target quantities in reference to an appropriate standard curve, derived from a series of known dilutions.
The NEB Luna Universal qPCR Master Mix is an optimized 2X reaction mix for real-time qPCR detection and quantitation of target DNA sequences using the SYBR®/FAM channel of most real-time qPCR instruments. It contains Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase and has been formulated with a unique passive reference dye that is compatible across a variety of instrument platforms (including those that require a high or low ROX reference signal). It also features dUTP for carryover prevention and a non-fluorescent, visible dye to monitor reaction setup. This dye does not spectrally overlap with fluorescent dyes used for qPCR and will not interfere with real-time detection.
The master mix formulation is supplied at 2X concentration and contains all PCR components required for amplification and quantitation of DNA except primers and DNA template. Genomic DNA or cDNA of interest can be quantitated with Luna qPCR, and existing as well as commercial qPCR assay primer sequences can be used.
