Hi Georg!

One of the best kits (in my opinion) for synthesizing long cDNAs is the
kit from Gibco/BRL which utilizes the reverse transcriptase
"SuperScript", which is quite efficient in producing long cDNAs. This
kit comes with a well dimensioned cDNA sizing column, and with an
excellent user manual.

Good luck!

(As you will know, I have no connection to Gibco/BRL).
