Field Tester Program

Do you love to try new reagents? Are you always looking for ways improve your protocols in the lab? We're recruiting a select group of scientists willing to try out new products or new applications for existing products. See the list of current Field Tester Projects below, or contact us if you have a suggestion for a different project.

In thanks for your time, you can choose from a 40% discount on your next purchase (up to a discount value of $200) or a $100 gift card to Amazon.com* upon project comepletion.

Available Field Tester Projects

We are currently recruiting for the following projects. This list will be updated periodically, so check back for newly-requested projects. Have an idea that's not on this list? E-mail us to suggest it!
Project 1: Whole genome epigenetic analysis. Compare TaKaRa EpiTaq HS with your current enzyme for whole genome bisulfite sequencing. Please indicate which sequencing platform you will be using.
Project 2: Fast colony PCR. Compare SapphireAmp Fast PCR Master Mix with your current enzyme to screen for plasmid inserts using the fast colony PCR protocol.
Project 3: High fidelity PCR. Compare PrimeSTAR GXL DNA Polymerase to Phusion HS DNA Polymerase for endpoint PCR.
Project 4: Non-coding RNA expression analysis. Compare PrimeScript Reverse Transcriptase with your current RTase for real-time PCR quantification of non-coding RNA expression.
