The Target Tube RNA control is required for each water sample and verifies that the RNA isolation and qPCR analysis have been completed successfully. This makes it an extra quality control and prevents incorrect results from being produced. The Target Tube RNA control is packed per 50 pieces and is ready for use. The shelf life of the Target Tube is at least 1 year at room temperature, if stored in the dark.
The importance of this qPCR measurement is that we can measure the quality of swimming water on the day itself instead of 3 days before.
