Considerations when adopting published sequences for your own qPCR assay

Lab tip: Published papers that use qPCR applications are a resource of vetted assay sequences. These can be co-opted and converted to more sensitive, double-quenched probes for use in your own experiments. Before ordering, though, go through this checklist to ensure that these sequences will work well in your assays, and consider up-to-date PrimeTime Predesigned qPCR Assays with guaranteed efficiencies of >90%.
