Question: Is there a difference between the Cot DNA and Human Cot DNA reagents in the Target Hybridization Kit?
Answer: These two reagents are identical and can be used interchangeably in the Targeted Gene Expression assay:
- Human Cot DNA, PN-3000478
- Cot DNA, PN-3000478
In 2021, the reagent name was changed from "Human Cot DNA" to "Cot DNA". The part number remained the same and the reagent formulation remained the same.
Note for mouse samples:
The Cot DNA / Human Cot DNA reagent is compatible with both mouse and human samples in the Targeted Gene Expression assay. During in-house testing, we observed comparable assay performance when testing Human Cot DNA and Mouse Cot DNA with mouse samples. Therefore, the Human Cot DNA provided in the Target Hybridization Kit is supported for use with mouse samples.
