Welcome to Sensimix Real-time PCR Kits

Sensimix Real-time PCR Kits

Bioline's SensiMix Kits are a complete range of highly optimized ready-to-use kits, designed to deliver outstanding results for real-time PCR experiments with both DNA and RNA templates. Powered by a highly-sensitive hot-start DNA polymerase, SensiMix formulations facilitate very rapid enzyme-extension rates, enabling fast cycling conditions to be used without compromising PCR efficiency, target detection sensitivity, specificity or reproducibility. SensiMix Kits give reliable and highly reproducible data on all real-time PCR instruments, thereby reducing the optimization required for even the most challenging assays.

Sensimix : Hrm kits


High Resolution Meltcurve (HRM) analysis characterizes nucleic acid samples based on their dissociation behaviour. It combines the principle of intercalating dyes, meltcurve analyses and the application of specific statistical analyses. HRM uses the fundamental property of the separation of the two strands of DNA with heat (melting), and the monitoring of this melting with a fluorescent dye. The SensiMix HRM Kit employs a 3rd generation saturating dye that does not inhibit PCR at high concentrations

Features and Benefits

* Cost effective: method is less expensive and as sensitive as probe-based methods, making it ideal for large scale genotyping projects
* Simple and reproducible: powerful genotyping can be performed by non-geneticists in any laboratory with access to an HRM capable real-time PCR machine
* Sensitive: detects class 4 (A/T) SNP mutations
* Convenient: with optimized protocols, reliable assays can quickly and reliably be established, even with genomic loci that are difficult to amplify

Instrument Compatibility

Roche LightCycler® 480 and the Corbett Rotor-GeneTM 6000 (See product selection table).

Description

High Resolution Meltcurve (HRM) analysis characterizes nucleic acid samples based on their dissociation behavior. It combines the principle of intercalating dyes, meltcurve analyses and the application of specific statistical analyses

HRM uses the fundamental property of the separation of the two strands of DNA with heat (melting), and the monitoring of this melting with a fluorescent dye. The SensiMix HRM Kit employs a 3rd generation saturating dye that does not inhibit PCR at high concentrations and has been validated for use on the Roche LightCycler® 480 and the Corbett Rotor-Gene™ 6000.

Melting temperature of a dsDNA target depends on GC content, length, and sequence. Due to the high sensitivity of HRM dyes, even a single base change will induce differences in the melting curve, and consequently in fluorescence. Main applications of HRM include Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) genotyping, epigenetics (DNA methylation analysis), zygosity testing (DNA mapping and DNA fingerprinting) and gene scanning (search for the presence of unknown variations in PCR amplicons).
