Platinum® Taq DNA polymerase
  • placeholder

Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase is a recombinant Taq DNA polymerase complexed with a proprietary antibody that inhibits polymerase activity at ambient temperatures. Due to specific binding of the inhibitor, Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase is provided in an inactive form. The DNA polymerase is then activated in a temperature-dependent manner (at 94ºC) during the start of PCR. Once dissociated from the inhibitor, the Taq DNA polymerase regains its full activity.Benefits of Platinum® Taq DNA PolymeraseHigh specificity with less background from nonspecific PCR products including primer-dimersIncreased yield of PCR productBroader range of magnesium toleranceLess PCR optimization (e.g., Mg2+ concentration, annealing temperature, primer concentration, etc.)-Increased sensitivity (less target is requir...Read more

"After trying multiple taqs, this is the only one that is able to reliably amplify my fragments from bisulphite converted DNA! I love this taq."

Description

Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase is a recombinant Taq DNA polymerase complexed with a proprietary antibody that inhibits polymerase activity at ambient temperatures. Due to specific binding of the inhibitor, Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase is provided in an inactive form. The DNA polymerase is then activated in a temperature-dependent manner (at 94ºC) during the start of PCR. Once dissociated from the inhibitor, the Taq DNA polymerase regains its full activity.

Benefits of Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase
  • High specificity with less background from nonspecific PCR products including primer-dimers
  • Increased yield of PCR product
  • Broader range of magnesium tolerance
  • Less PCR optimization (e.g., Mg2+ concentration, annealing temperature, primer concentration, etc.)
  • -Increased sensitivity (less target is required)
