One Step RT-PCR—Gene Specific RT—Titanium One-Step RT-PCR Kit

The Titanium One-Step RT-PCR Kit provides an easy-to-use, streamlined procedure for performing reverse transcription-PCR. The entire reaction is performed in a single tube, eliminating cross-contamination problems. Along with convenience, this kit offers unparalleled sensitivity and efficiency and is ideal for comparing gene expression levels across different samples. With its high sensitivity, you can rely on the Titanium One-Step RT-PCR Kit for all analytical RT-PCR applications.

Improved One-Step Method

Traditional methods use separate steps for reverse transcription and PCR, thus requiring more hands-on time and allowing for potential sample crossover and contamination. In contrast, the Titanium One-Step RT-PCR Kit allows you to go straight from RT incubation to PCR cycling without opening tubes or adding reagents. The One-Step RT-PCR Kit includes reagents that ensure superior performance, allowing you to:

  • Minimize problems associated with RNA secondary structure. The thermostabilizing reagent allows reverse transcription to be performed at 50°C, providing increased specificity when used with gene-specific primers.
  • Perform hot start PCR for enhanced specificity and sensitivity. The Titanium Taq RT Enzyme Mix includes TaqStart Antibody for built-in hot start PCR (1–3).

One-step RT-PCR is the best method for working with multiple RNA samples. However, for amplifying multiple fragments from a single RNA source, two-step RT-PCR can actually be more efficient because only a single reverse transcription reaction mix is required. For two-step applications, we recommend our Advantage RT-for-PCR Kit.
