TaqMan® PreAmp Master Mix
TaqMan® PreAmp Master Mix is designed to facilitate analysis of limited-quantity samples, including single cells. Use the mix to expand small amounts of cDNA by pre-amplification without introducing amplification bias to the sample. Pre-amplification enables you to stretch your precious sample for use in many more real-time PCR reactions than you could otherwise run. Order now
