Product Description

2X Forget-Me-Not™ Universal qPCR Probe Master Mix is a high-performance product for fluorescent probe-based PCR applications, including quantitation and SNP genotyping.

  • Suitable for all fluorescent probe types, including TaqMan®, BHQ®, and molecular beacons
  • Sensitive, robust, and reproducible performance at a fraction of the cost of other mixes
  • For singleplex or multiplex reactions
  • Tracking Buffer helps you catch pipetting mistakes, saving time and precious samples
  • Cheetah™ HotStart Taq for fast cycling protocols
  • With or without separate ROX for use with any qPCR instrument

The master mix contains Cheetah™ HotStart Taq DNA Polymerase and dNTPs in a buffer optimized for high qPCR sensitivity and multiplex reactions. Only primers, probe, and template need to be added.

Cheetah™ HotStart Taq DNA Polymerase

Biotium’s proprietary chemically modified hot-start DNA Polymerase. Cheetah™ Taq is completely inactive at room temperature, but is fully activated in 2 minutes at 95°C with high activity recovery, making it particularly suitable for fast PCR.

Forget-Me-Not™ Tracking Buffer

The 40X Forget-Me-Not™ Tracking Buffer contains an inert blue dye. You have the choice of adding Tracking Buffer to the master mix, to the DNA template, or not to use the tracking buffer in your reactions. Addition of Tracking Buffer to your master mix allows you to easily distinguish wells containing reaction mix from empty wells. Alternatively, when added to your DNA template samples, the Tracking Buffer allows you to see which reactions have had template added while you set up your PCR reactions.

SNP genotyping using dual-labeled BHQ1Plus® hydrolysis probes. DNA samples were genotyped in reactions containing 450 nM of each primer and 100 nM of each probe (Allele 1 probe-FAM/ BHQ®-1, Allele 2 probe- CAL Fluor® Orange 560/BHQ®-1) on a QuantStudio® 5 system (ThermoFisher Scientific).
Singleplex and triplex PCR of GAPDH, ACTB, and TFCR from human genomic DNA. PCR detection of GAPDH, ACTB, or TFCR in singleplex reactions, or together in triplex reactions. Reactions contained 20 ng of human genomic DNA, 400 nM of each primer, and 200 nM of each hydrolysis probe (GAPDH-FAM/BHQ®-1, ACTB-CAL Fluor® Orange 560/BHQ®-1, TFCR-CAL Fluor Red 610/ BHQ®-2.
