    Direct DNA Detection

    Avoid labor and time-intensive DNA extraction by using direct detection methods. Air-Dryable Direct DNA qPCR Plant Mix is optimized for robust, sensitive amplification straight from plant lysate. Just add your primers and probes!


    Sensitive Amplification

    Detect DNA down to a single copy using Air-Dryable Direct DNA qPCR Plant Mix. The mix's high inhibitor tolerance enables ultra-sensitive amplification, even from crude plant lysate. Early detection of plant diseases can save significant costs.


    Room-Temperature Stable

    Air-Dryable Direct DNA qPCR Plant Mix can be used to create room-temperature stable assays that have a shelf-life of +12 months. The mixes contain a blend of additives that are optimized for oven or air drying.

    Ultra-Sensitive Detection from Crude Lysate

    (Detect Down to 1 Copy of DNA)

    Detection down to 1 copy of Rice ATPe in tomato lysate using Air-Dryable Direct DNA qPCR Plant Mix. Air-Dryable Direct DNA qPCR Plant Mix was air dried with rice ATPe primers and probe. The dried material was reconstituted in 40% tomato leaf alkaline lysate containing 1,000 copies (brown), 100 copies (amber), 10 copies (green) and 1 copy (blue) genome equivalents per reaction of Rice gDNA.

    Air-Dryable Direct qPCR Plant was named one of the Top 10 most innovative products for 2021 by SeedWorld. To learn more, watch the SeedWorld Innovation Series webinar: “Speed up Agbio testing with Ambient temperature stable direct qPCR”.

    Experience a Faster Workflow with Direct Detection

    By removing the DNA or RNA extraction step, there is less hands-on labor, reduced risk of cross-contamination and sample loss, and a significantly faster assay turnaround time.
