Real-time fluorescence-based quantitative PCR has become established as the benchmark technology for the quantification of nucleic acids, offering an immense choice of protocols, chemistries and instruments. However, whilst there are comparatively few technical problems associated with DNA-targeted quantitative PCR, this is not the case for real-time reverse transcription PCR assays, and there is considerable uncertainty regarding biological or clinical relevance of many real-time reverse… Expand
Comparison of nine different real-time PCR chemistries for qualitative and quantitative applications in GMO detection
TLDR
An extensive evaluation of some promising chemistries: sequence-unspecific DNA labeling dyes (SYBR green), primer-based technologies (AmpliFluor, Plexor, Lux primers), and techniques involving double-labeled probes, comprising hybridization (molecular beacon) and hydrolysis (TaqMan, CPT, LNA, and MGB) probes, based on recently published experimental data.
