cDNA Synthesis

Accurate Expression Levels, Unbiased Reverse Transcription

Rely on our new EvoScript Universal cDNA Master and EvoScript Reverse Transcriptase to redefine performance and sensitivity in reverse transcription applications.

Use Evoscript Reverse Transcriptase for highly sensitive and convenient cDNA synthesis in two-step RT-qPCR or EvoScript Universal cDNA Master including random primer and oligo(dT)18 primer in the Reaction Buffer enabling high cDNA yields from all regions of the RNA template.  The 2-vial composition is ideally suited for reverse transcription, requiring only the addition of gene-specific primers and target RNA. Or, choose the proven and reliable Transcriptor cDNA kits, or the Transcriptor Reverse Transcriptase.
