With over thousands of references and citations, the SuperScript® family of reverse transcriptases is a first choice for cDNA synthesis. SuperScript® reverse transcriptases are designed to reliably and efficiently deliver high yields of full-length cDNA. SuperScript® reverse transcriptases have been engineered for higher levels of thermostability and a longer half-life at 50°C. If you need maximum sensitivity for real-time RT-PCR and microarray experiments, and cDNA that represents input RNA with maximum fidelity, you need SuperScript® reverse transcriptase.
