PerfeCTa SYBR Green FastMix

"With the PerfeCTa SYBR Green FastMix we had less variability in our triplicates and more reproducible results between repeat experiments."

repliQa HiFi ToughMix

"All I can say from testing repliQa HiFi ToughMix is that the results are jaw-dropping. The Platinum™ SuperFi II PCR Master Mix did nothing in the same amount of time under the same conditions. The assay I was testing out is a new way to amplify entire mitogenomes as a single amplicon (~15kb). This is a game changer, cutting the PCR time from ~8.5hrs to 1.5hrs, and way more product is generated. I am not often floored by data, but these results are amazing. I have another project I am working on with this assay and I am going to switch to this polymerase for sure. Good work Quantabio!"

sparQ PureMag Beads

“I used the sparQ PureMag beads for mRNA purification after in vitro transcription. The sparQ beads demonstrated an excellent recovery (~98%) and could be used for size selection of the desired mRNA product. Highly recommended."

Q qPCR Instrument
My group was looking for a qPCR machine that didn’t take up much bench space or require annual maintenance, which the Q machine fits. Additional features I like include its ability to multiplex with up to 4 dyes in the same tube, its relative ease of use, and free software that can be used on anyone’s PC making it easy for everyone in the group to use. We’ve just begun using the machine, but so far I’ve been happy with the data acquisition obtained from it.

qScript 1-Step Virus ToughMix

"1-Step Virus ToughMix performed BETTER than other 3 mixes and amplified very well the S target from SARS-CoV-2 in a highly multiplex environment."

sparQ DNA Frag & Library Prep Kit

“The sparQ kit safeguards samples from over fragmentation and routinely provides more consistent fragment size. Once optimized, I had peace of mind knowing my samples were safe when I got busy in the lab.”

Scientist, Laboratory Manager | Agricultural Genomics Institute
repliQa HiFi ToughMix

"Worked great amplifying two gene target from plasmid DNA. It was the first time I have performed a two step reaction and it worked great. It was awesome running everything in 23 minutes too."

UltraPlex 1-Step ToughMix

"Compared to other 1-step qRT-PCR mixes we have used, UltraPlex 1-Step ToughMix (4X) Low-ROX, 500R performs with the same sensitivity when testing using SARS-CoV-2-spiked saliva samples, but is easier to use and at a significantly lower price per reaction. The mix requires little to no time to thaw, decreasing the time required when preparing samples. The mix is also conveniently aliquoted into multiple tubes, reducing the chance for contamination as opposed to a single, high volume aliquot. Overall, these factors make this a better overall product as compared to competing companies (e.g., Thermo Fisher Scientific or Zymo) and we will continue to use this moving forward."

sparQ PureMag Beads

"Beads performed as well in my tests as Ampure XP which I consider to be the gold standard.  Impressive results given the lower price for sparQ PureMag Beads."
