AccuPower® RocketScript™ RT PreMix

RocketScript™ the ONLY M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase Thermostable up to 70°C

AccuPower® RocketScript™ RT PreMix contains BIoneer’s exclusive M-MLV based thermostable reverse transcriptase (RTase), RocketScript™. Native M-MLV RTase has maximum activity at relatively low temperatures (42°C), causing several problems in reverse transcription of RNA molecules with complex secondary structure.

RocketScript™ has thermostable activity (42°C~70°C), allowing efficient cDNA synthesis from virtually any RNA. The lyophilized PreMix contains all components necessary for a successful reverse transcription reaction, including RTase, RNase inhibitor and buffer components. Just add template RNA, primers and water, and the RT reaction is ready to go.

Features and Benefits

  • Thermostable Activity: RocketScript™ is able to perform reverse transcription reactions throughout a wide range of temperatures from 42°C to 70°C.
  • Enhanced Performance: RocketScript™ has enhanced performance to handle both high and low input RNA concentrations as well as short and long RT target sizes.
  • Easy-to-use: The product contains the enzyme itself, plus RNase inhibitors and all other components necessary for the best reverse transcription results in the tube.
  • Reproducibility: Bioneer's strict quality controlled production system ensures that your results will be reproducible experiment after experiment.
  • Convenient: Just add template and primers and start your reaction. dNTPs, buffer and enzyme are provided.
  • Stability: Stable at room temperature for a month one year at 4°C and for 2 years in a -20°C freezer
  • RNase, DNase and Proteinase-free: Ensures the integrity of your samples.
  • Broad range of working temperatures: For RNAs that are G:C rich or significant secondary structure
  • Stable for 2 years at -20°C: Long shelf life
