Applied Biosystems® AmpliTaq® DNA Polymerase is a 94 kDa, thermostable, recombinant DNA polymerase obtained by expression of a modified form of the Thermus aquaticus (Taq) DNA polymerase gene in E. coli. It is the most thoroughly characterized enzyme available for the PCR process and its recombinant nature and purification method provide unparalleled purity and reproducibility, vial-to-vial, lot-to-lot.
AmpliTaq® DNA Polymerase is the most thoroughly characterized enzyme available for the PCR process, a testimony to its overall utility and efficacy
Its thermal activity profile makes it good for PCR applications
It is QC-tested to guarantee reproducible results
Good for PCR
The thermal activity profile of AmpliTaq® DNA Polymerase is good for PCR applications because its optimal activity is in the same range at which stringent annealing of primers occurs (55°C–75°C). The enzyme's half-life is ~40 minutes at 95°C, providing thermostability that meets the View Morerequirements of most difficult PCR applications.
