pxlence - Rainbow probes
Universal detection of nucleic acids using RainbowTM primers and probes for digital PCR
With patent-pending RainbowTM nucleic acid detection probes, no more need to design and optimize a target-specific probe. We modify one of the oligonucleotides of your existing PCR primer pair (converting it into a RainbowTM primer) so that it is recognized by a RainbowTM probe during amplicon generation.
With 2 to 6 RainbowTM probes (depending on your digital PCR instrument), you can quantify any target in multiplex. Ideally suited for applications that require many different probes (e.g. (higher-order) multiplexing) or applications that only need small amounts of probes (e.g. pilot experiments, patient-specific assays).

Advantages
No time lost designing and optimizing a probe sequence
Available on stock with quick delivery
Maximally cost efficient: same probe for different targets, no more unused stock
Key features
Developed for digital PCR quantification (high signal to noise)
Highly concentrated (60X) to enable multiplexing
Ultrashort amplicons possible (no space needed for a probe)
Ideal for quantification on FFPE tissue and liquid biopsies
