VLA Scientific Introduces Innovative Range of RT-PCR Controls
VLA Scientific has developed several Tuff® RNAs which encode target sequences for a number of RT-PCR assays for animal viruses. These can be used as positive PCR or process controls for diagnostic molecular tests, avoiding the risk of using an infectious virus.
Tuff® RNAs are recombinant Cowpea Mosaic Virus that are stable, transportable at 4oC and can be incorporated into your routine testing schedule as a positive control assuring the correct performance of specific RT-PCR assays. As the target RNA is encapsidated, the problem of RNA degradation associated with naked RNA or in-vitro transcripts is eliminated. The range of Tuff® RNAs currently includes:
