- Applications: End-Point PCR, Colony/Whole Cell PCR, RT-PCR, Two-Step PCR, Low-Copy Target, and Primer-Dimer Reduction
IBI Taq HotStart DNA Polymerase is a chemically modified hot start enzyme excellent for preventing or minimizing non-specific DNA amplification. The novel modifying reagent creates a faster activation time, an improvement over similar chemically modifed hot start enzymes. The alkaline activation condition makes for greater activity and better specific amplification which minimizes primer-dimers. The superior stability of IBI Taq HotStart also means longer shelf life!
Under standard hot start conditions (94◦C in Tris w/ pH 8-9) IBI Taq HotStart regains both the 5’ → 3’ polymerase and 5’ → 3’ exonuclease activity within two minutes. IBI Taq HotStart suppresses enzyme activity at room temperature with near full recovery of enzyme activity following activation. Our proprietary purification process also produces a contaminant- and nuclease-free enzyme that offers high-copy PCR products from low concentration template or enzyme.
