Air-Dryable TM Direct DNA qPCR Plant Mix

Air-Dryable Direct qPCR Plant is the first commercially available mix designed for developing room-temperature stable assays for the direct quantitation of DNA from plants. It is suitable for direct detection from leaf, root, seeds and soil samples.


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.
