FastQ® HFE +++ Coming soon! +++
|Amplification from whole blood||M. Bechterew et al.
|FastQ® B*27 direct
FastQ® CD direct +++ Coming soon +++
FastQ® HFE direct +++ Coming soon! +++
Blood Booster for reproducible results directly from blood
The FastQ® Direct product line incorporates our new Blood Booster reagent, this ensures reliable and highly reproducible results even with difficult blood samples (e.g. high EDTA concentration) - supporting data can be found here.
With the Blood Booster, blood samples can be diluted and pipetted directly! It saves a lot of time, work and expensive material.
The FastQ® direct kits offer your laboratory important advantages:
- fast: no time-consuming pre-treatment of the blood sample
- cost-saving: expensive DNA isolation is not necessary
- safe: reduced risk of cross-contamination
„Why should we choose FastQ® direct? With these kits you can use diluted blood samples immediately. No special pre-treatment is necessary. You avoid a lot of environmentally harmful waste."
Fast and valid results
Through optimized multiplexing and the use of Taqman® probes we maximize the precision and safety of the FastQ® product line. For reliable results, an internal amplification control is included in each PCR reaction. Minimize your hands-on time with our kits and generate clear results really fast.
We would be pleased to validate our kits on your real-time instrument.
- flexible - the liquid format is compatible with various real time cyclers
- compatible - use the same PCR program for all FastQ® kits or rather FastQ® direct kits
- efficient - use the diluted blood immediately with our FastQ® direct kits
- safe handling - ready-to-use reagents
Our ready-to-use reagents and the real-time PCR method provide you a simple solution. If you use our FastQ® direct kits, you can dilute your blood sample with DNAse free water (1:50) and pipette the pre mix directly. Special preparation e.g. time-consuming heating of the sample is not necessary.
The PCR run takes about 60 minutes when you using isolated DNA and about 90 minutes when you using a sample direct from blood.
