Overview
M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase mutant designed for high thermostability and comparable performance to the market leader.
  • Reverse transcribe difficult templates.
    The high thermostability of NxtScript allows reactions up to +60°C to overcome RNA secondary structures (e.g., in GC-rich templates).
  • Achieve higher yield.
    NxtScript RT lacks RNase H activity. This results in higher cDNA yields.
  • Stay specific.
    Make use of the wide temperature activity range of NxtScript and reverse transcribe at the temperature that is optimal for your RNA target.
+-
Application
Use NxtScript RT for synthesis of cDNA from total RNA or mRNA for:
  • Two-step RT-PCR applications
  • RT-PCR for detection of viral targets
  • RT-PCR for detection of mRNA targets, such as cancer biomarkers
  • TMA and NASBA nucleic acid amplification methods
  • Generation of full-length cDNA libraries
  • Rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE)
