Thunder™ Reverse Transcriptase


Thunder reverse transcriptase (RT) is an RNA-dependent DNA polymerase that can be used for complementary DNA (cDNA) synthesis from an RNA template and is ideal for use in molecular amplification assays. Thunder RT is a robust enzyme that works in a broad range of temperatures (40 - 72 °C) and has RNase H activity.

Important note: Please be sure to use the buffer provided with this product to ensure optimal results.

Thunder RT can be used in combination with Varizymes' Torch technology for molecular amplification assays.
