RNA is easily degraded. Take extra precautions against contamination by using new gloves and clean lab coats when working with RNA. Use only RNase-free lab materials when handling this product. Vortexing can damage the synthetic RNA. Gentle pipetting is highly recommended. Aliquoting is highly recommended to avoid multiple freeze-thaws, which can damage the synthetic RNA.
The following primers and probe can be used with this nucleic acid preparation.
Forward Primer (5’ to 3’): CAGACCACGCTACGGCG
Reverse Primer (5’ to 3’): CTAGGGCCGCGTGGG
Probe (5’ to 3’): 56-FAM/TCTGCGGAGAGTGCAGTCTGCGAT/3BHQ_1
