Performance Protocol Components

Ensure that you do not contaminate the 2X real-time PCR cocktail by dividing into aliquots containing the amount of cocktail necessary for the number of reactions you are preparing each day. The rest of the cocktail should be kept in storage away from any sources of template DNA.

When using qBiomarker Mastermix with qBiomarker Copy Number PCR Arrays or qBiomarker Copy Number Assays refer to the appropriate User Manual / Handbook for reaction mixtures.

  1. For general PCR purposes, mix the following components in a PCR tube:

    10.0 µl qBiomarker SYBR« Green Mastermix
    1.0 µl qBiomarker Copy Number Assay
    Varies ddH2O
     4ng (fresh); 8-20 ng (FFPE) genomic DNA
    25.0 µl final volume

  2. Recommended real-time thermal cycler program. Please find your product for the correct cycling conditions.
    *NOTE: The 10 min step at 95 ºC is required to activate the HotStart Taq DNA polymerase.
    1. qBiomarker Copy Number PCR Arrays & Copy Number Assays

      Select the Cycling Program appropriate for your Real-Time Instrument:

      Two-Step Cycling Program: 95ºC, 10 min; 40 cycles of (95ºC, 15 sec; and 60ºC, 60 sec); or 

      Three-Step Cycling Program: 95ºC, 10 min; 40 cycles of (95ºC, 15 sec; 55ºC, 30-40 sec, and 72ºC, 30 sec)

  3. Program the real-time thermal cycler to detect and record the SYBR« Green signal from every reaction at the end of the 60║C annealing / extension step of each cycle.
  4. Run your instrument's default melting curve program immediately after the above PCR program, and generate a first derivative dissociation curve. No more than one peak should appear in each reaction

    If your instrument does not have a default melting curve program, run the following program instead:

    95ºC, 1 min; 65ºC, 2 min (OPTICS OFF); 65ºC to 95ºC at 2ºC/ min (OPTICS ON).

NOTE: Be sure to visually inspect the plate after the run for any signs of evaporation from any of the wells. If evaporation is observed, make a note of which wells so that you may qualify your data analysis appropriately.
