Please check the kit components immediately after you receive this
package. SABiosciences is not responsible for missing items not reported within
two (2) business days upon receipt.
Storage Conditions: The
kit is shipped on dry ice or cold packs. For long-term storage, keep at -20ºC. If entire volume is not be used all at once, divide into aliquots and
store at -20ºC. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Shelf Life: All reagents are
stable for 6 months after receipt of the kit if stored at the recommended
AmpR-150Z: One (1) tube containing
90µl RT² PreAMP cDNA Rat Cytokines & Chemokines Primer Mix solution
Enough for 12 25-µl standard PreAMP reactions
Read carefully the User Manual of the RT² PreAMP cDNA Synthesis Kit
prior to first-time use. Refer to the instructions in the User Manual
every time you use the RT² PreAMP cDNA Synthesis Kit (catalog #330451).
Ensure that you do not contaminate the RT² PreAMP cDNA Synthesis
Primer Mix by using a fresh pipette tip every time you draw an aliquot
from the tube.
- Perform first strand synthesis using the RT² PreAMP cDNA Synthesis Kit as
A. Add 2 Ál of GE to 8 Ál of RNA (1-100ng). Incubate at 42░C for 5 min and
immediately chill on ice.
B. Mix a master mix for the RT reaction as below:
|For 1 reaction
|BC3 ||4 µl
|RE ||1 µl
|RI ||1 µl
|P2 ||1 µl
|RNase/DNase free H2O ||3
C. Add 10 µl of the RT master mix to 10 µl GE-treated RNA.
D. Incubate at 42ºC for 30 min and heat at 95ºC for 5 min. Chill on ice or
store at -20ºC until proceeding to the next step.
For the normal standard reaction, mix the following components in a PCR
|| 2X RT² PreAMP PCR Master Mix
|| RT² PreAMP cDNA Primer Mix specific for the
RT² Profiler™ PCR Array of your choice
|| Template undiluted cDNA from the 20-µl first
strand synthesis reaction (step 2D)
|| final volume
Perform 12 cycles of PCR in a thermal cycler:
NOTE: The 10 min step at 95ºC is required to activate the HotStart Taq
95ºC, 10 min; 12 cycles of (95ºC, 15 sec; and 60ºC, 2 min); 4ºC
Add 2 µl of the Side Reaction Reducer to each pre-amplified reaction, and
incubate at 37ºC for 15 min followed by heat inactivation at 95ºC for 5
Dilute the 27-µl pre-amplified templates to 111 µl by adding 84 µl of dd
H2O. For immediate use, keep on ice prior to loading onto the RT² Profiler™
PCR Array, or store at -20ºC until ready.
For use in the RT² Profiler™ PCR Array, prepare the Experimental Cocktail with the following components in
15-mL conical tube:
||2X SABiosciences RT² qPCR SYBR Green Master Mix (Note:
Use the appropriate master mix specific for your real-time PCR
||diluted PreAMP PCR reaction
|| final volume
Add 25 µl of the above Experimental Cocktail to each well of the PCR Array,
preferably from a reservoir with an eight-channel pipettor (or a
twelve-channel pipettor but only using eight tips).
Run the following real-time thermal cycler program:
NOTE: The 10 min step at 95ºC is required to activate the HotStart Taq DNA
95ºC, 10 min; 40 cycles of (95ºC, 15 sec; and 60ºC, 60 sec)
Program the real-time thermal cycler to detect and record the SYBR« Green I
signal from every reaction during the annealing step of each cycle.
