FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase is a thermostable, chemically modified form of recombinant Taq DNA Polymerase. This enzyme delivers superior results thanks to its unique enzyme design and optimized buffer system. FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase is inactive at temperatures below 75°C, but is activated by a 2- to 4-minute incubation step at 95°C.
Hot Start PCR
Insist on higher specificity, sensitivity, and yield. Hot start PCR dramatically improves the overall PCR performance.
Challenge even the most problematic DNA. The revolutionary GC-RICH Solution, a PCR additive that reduces template secondary structure, is conveniently supplied with this product.
Conveniently use robotic pipetting systems. The PCR setup can be performed at room temperature due to the enzyme’s initial inactivity.
Make PCR setup easier. Manual hot start, wax barriers, beads, or the need to set up PCRs on ice can be eliminated when using this hot start enzyme.
Prevent carryover contamination. This enzyme allows the incorporation of modified nucleotides and dUTP. In combination with Uracil-DNA Glycosylase, it safeguards PCR from cross contamination.
