The SsoFast EvaGreen control assay from Bio-Rad Laboratories is a prepackaged kit that helps labs verify their real-time PCR instrument performance.
Large labs experiencing frequent personnel changes can use the control assay
to train new users on real-time PCR experiment set up, instrument operation,
and data analysis, and to verify that all users can obtain consistent
The assay provides:
• Broad dynamic range over six orders of magnitude, from 102 to 108 copies of
• High efficiency and R2 (greater than 90% efficiency and R2 > 0.99
with good laboratory technique)
• Fast run times (50 min including a melt curve on the CFX96 real-time
The kit contains enough reagents to run a standard curve three times and
includes control template DNA and primers, SsoFast EvaGreen supermix,
nuclease-free water, and recommended cycling protocols as well as
instructions on how to set up a standard curve.
