Is BHQ Probe Master Mix stable at room temperature?
BHQ Probe Master Mix is an incredibly stable PCR/qPCR Master Mix, which shows little-to-no reduction in performance when left at room temperature, even when combined with all other PCR-reaction components. We have demonstrated Cq > 1.0 when assembled qPCR reactions were left at room temperature for 16 hours, in both singleplex and multiplex applications.
To maintain high performance, it is recommended to store BHQ Probe Master Mix at -20 °C, and aliquot it into nuclease-free, light-protected tubes to minimise the number of freeze-thaw cycles. BHQ Probe Master Mix is also stable at +4 °C for 1 week.
