Since its introduction in 2005, the ValuProbe BHQ Probe has become Biosearch Technologies' most popular product sold to the real-time qPCR industry. Many molecular biologists choose the ValuProbe BHQ Probe because they are quality, superior performing fluorescence-quenched probes that work great for validating and optimizing real-time qPCR assays.
Always offered at the low price of $95, Biosearch is adding more colors to the ValuProbe product line for a limited time. In addition to FAM, ValuProbe BHQ Probes will also be available with CAL Fluor Orange 560, CAL Fluor Red 610, and Quasar 670 dyes. These new promotional fluorophore options are available as 5 nmol delivered and are HPLC purified. ValuProbe BHQ Probes labeled with FAM, however, will continue being sold as 10 nmol delivered, also HPLC purified.
With emission spectra that span the entire visible spectrum, Biosearch's CAL Fluor and Quasar dyes are compatible with the optics of many popular thermal cyclers and were developed specifically to complement the BHQ dyes. Not only are these specifications highly advantageous for real-time qPCR assays, but they are especially functional when used in multiplexed qPCR assays.
