Eurogentec offers efficient and innovative products for your RT-qPCR experiments.

qPCR enzyme

Takyon™ inspired by the faster than light particle (Tachyon) is the reference RT-qPCR line of Eurogentec.

It is designed to provide high sensitivity and accurate reproducible results. Its unique formulation gathers all the advantages of an optimised reaction buffer combined to a new robust and efficient fusion enzyme.

With the Takyon™ kits get access to a new level of speed in your RT-qPCR applications.

One-step vs two-step RT-qPCR

Reverse Transcription (RT) and qPCR can be achieved in a One-Step or in a Two-Step approach. A Two-Step reaction consists in distinct RT and qPCR reactions (using MasterMix or Core Kit). A One-Step approach consists in a single tube reaction combining all the necessary reagents to amplify DNA from a RNA based sample. The One-Step Takyon™ MasterMix contains the EuroscriptII RT which delivers highly robust performance on classical mRNAs, small RNAs and viral RNAs.

One-step approach is a simple process limiting the contamination risks without compromising performances; thanks to the robust reverse transcriptase and the additive improving performance on difficult templates e.g. viral RNAs, FFPE, …

Some one-step kits are available as catalogue references but any other Takyon™ dTTP Master Mix for qPCR assays can easily be converted into a one-step RT-qPCR kit by using the Takyon™ One-Step kit converter.

NEW: Takyon™ Dry

Besides the liquid format, Takyon™ Master-Mixes for Probe RT-qPCR Assays are also available in a lyophilised format. Takyon™ Dry kits are recommended for on the field assays or for any other usages especially when cold chain becomes an issue.

Discover Takyon™ Dry for RT-qPCR: One-step lyophilised kits stable at room temperature for 18 months!
