SolisFAST® Lyo-Ready qPCR Kit with UNG is an optimized solution for fast and sensitive amplification and quantitation of DNA targets with probe-based assays. The kit comes in 2 tubes: the glycerol-free 5x SolisFAST® Lyo-compatible qPCR Mix with UNG and 4x SolisFAST® Lyo Excipient Mix. The composition is optimized for lyophilization to cakes or beads.

5x SolisFAST® Lyo-compatible qPCR Mix with UNG is a 5x concentrated qPCR master mix suitable for real-time detection and quantitation of up to five DNA targets simultaneously. It contains dUTPs instead of dTTPs, as well as Salini UNG® Uracil-N-Glycosylase to prevent carry-over contamination from previous amplifications. The mix does not contain any lyophilization additives or excipients.

4x SolisFAST® Lyo Excipient Mix is a 4x concentrated blend of additives that protect reagents during lyophilization. In combination with the glycerol-free qPCR mix, it enables lyophilization to beads or cakes.

Which lyophilization protocol should I use with the SolisFAST® Lyo-Ready qPCR Kit with UNG?

Please click HERE to open the Data Sheet of SolisFAST® Lyo-Ready qPCR Kit with UNG or find it under Related Resources. The Data Sheet includes the recommended lyophilization protocol.

Can I use other lyophilization excipients with the SolisFAST® Lyo-compatible qPCR Mix with UNG?

Yes, it is possible to opt for your own set of lyophilisation excipients with the SolisFAST® Lyo-compatible qPCR Mix with UNG. However, for the most optimal lyophilisation conditions and in order to achieve the most stable lyophilizates, we highly recommend using the dedicated SolisFAST® Lyo Excipient Mix.

Can I still use this mix if I do not want to lyophilize my assays?

Yes, it is possible to use this mix for liquid assays. However, if lyophilization is not desired, we recommend using our dedicated master mixes for regular liquid assays. The closest analogue to SolisFAST® Lyo-Ready qPCR Kit with UNG is SolisFAST® Probe qPCR Mix with UNG, catalog number 28-21-0001.

What are lyophilization excipients?

To protect the biological material, such as enzymes, from the temperature and pressure changes during lyophilization, freeze-drying protectants are employed. These protecting excipients ensure that the materials reserve their active state after lyophilisation. In addition to that, they provide an adequate structure to the lyophilized cake or bead.

What is lyophilization?

Lyophilization, commonly known as freeze-drying, is a process employed to remove the water content from a substance by sublimation after it has been frozen, while preserving its structure and properties. The reagents can be lyophilized to a spheric lyo-bead or a compact lyo-cake format.

Lyophilization helps to extend the product’s shelf life, enhance the stability of the reagents at higher tempereatures, even when mixed together with primers and probes, and allows for convenient and accurate dispensing of the reagents. After lyophilization, the reagents are easily reconstituted with sample material.
