Manufacturer Kapa Biosystems, Inc.  |  Available Worldwide
KAPA Taq DNA Polymerase is based on the single-subunit, wild-type Taq DNA polymerase of the thermophilic bacterium Thermus aquaticus. KAPA Taq and KAPA Taq HotStart DNA Polymerase have 5′-3′ polymerase and 5′-3′ exonuclease activities, but no 3′ to 5′ exonuclease (proofreading) activity. The enzyme has an error rate of approximately 1 error per 2.2 x 105 nucleotides incorporated. In the hot start formulation, the KAPA Taq is combined wit... Read more

KAPA Taq DNA Polymerase is based on the single-subunit, wild-type Taq DNA polymerase of the thermophilic bacterium Thermus aquaticus.

KAPA Taq and KAPA Taq HotStart DNA Polymerase have 5′-3′ polymerase and 5′-3′ exonuclease activities, but no 3′ to 5′ exonuclease (proofreading) activity. The enzyme has an error rate of approximately 1 error per 2.2 x 105 nucleotides incorporated. In the hot start formulation, the KAPA Taq is combined with a proprietary antibody that inactivates the enzyme until the first denaturation step, eliminating spurious amplification products and increasing reaction efficiency and sensitivity.

KAPA Taq is supplied in a 2X ReadyMix format containing all the components required for PCR except primers and template—simply use PCR-grade water to make up the required reaction volume. KAPA Taq ReadyMix is also available with loading dye reaction buffer, allowing, you to load your PCR product directly onto the agarose gel with no extra steps for adding loading/tracking dye.

 

Features:
