I guess you are talking about the more heat-stable RT kit Sigma has on
offer? The enzyme is OK, but quite a few companies have similar enzymes
on offer (like Qiagen, I think). If you buy it here in Germany, it is
actually cheaper to get the kit than get the enzyme alone ... weird.
Otherwise, if standard AMV will do, don't go for a kit ... chances are
you have most of the req'd stuff anyway ...
