Why does the reference dye come in a tube separate from the PrimeTime® Gene Expression Master Mix?
We provide a separate tube of reference dye so that you may use the PrimeTime® Gene Expression Master Mix on reference dye-dependent or -independent instruments. Also, the separate tube of reference dye allows you to add a high or low dye concentration to the master mix, depending on the requirements of the instrument you are using.
