qPCR - Ronit’s DNased C.gigas RNA with Elongation Factor Primers

After DNasing Ronit’s RNA earlier today, I needed to verify the RNA was free of any contaminating gDNA.

Used elongation factor primers:

  • EF1_qPCR_5’ (SRID 309)

  • EF1_qPCR_3’ (SRID 310)

BB16 from 20090519 was used as a positive control.

Samples were run on Roberts Lab CFX Connect (BioRad). All samples were run in duplicate. See qPCR Report (Results section) for plate layout, cycling params, etc.

Everything looks great! Nice, clean, gDNA-free RNA! Will proceed with reverse transcription.
