Positive and negative controls are a critical part of a gene silencing experiment. They enable accurate interpretation of knockdown data and provide confidence in the specificity of the response. Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed positive and negative controls for the TRIPZ products. These are available as glycerol stock or viral particle formats.
Glycerol stocks of shRNA containing control vectors are shipped as bacterial cultures of E. coli in LB (low salt) broth with 8% glycerol, carbenicillin (100 µg/mL) and zeocin (25 µg/mL). Thermo Fisher Scientific checks all cultures for growth prior to shipment.
