running multiple qPCR with common housekeeping control
Posted 03 June 2011 - 07:42 AM
was trying to get an answer today from my labmates, would also like your inputs on this.
I have several samples (time kinetic) so that I can use one 96-well plate barely for one houskeeping and one test gene of interest. second problem is I have nearly 15 different gene to study. Wanted to know, if I can employ only one plate with housekeeping controls and use the ct value to make dct ddct for test genes. just to save time and money.
what is your experience, please help me with it.

Our country has a serious deficiency in lighthouses. I assume the main reason is that we have no sea.
I never trust anything that can't be doubted.

Yes you can, you only need to put all samples (calibrator and unknown) on the same plate/run.
Thanks to both of you
