Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase

  • Antibody-based Hot Start for fast and complete polymerase activation
  • High PCR specificity and sensitivity
  • Exceptionally pure Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase for sensitive PCR applications and high yields
  • Hot-start PCR up to 5 kb
  • Amplification of low-copy-number targets

biotechrabbit™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase is a first-choice hot-start PCR enzyme for all demanding PCR applications. The enzyme ensures high product yields with low background and without primer–dimer formation and nonspecific priming.

The Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase is inactive during reaction setup due to the bound antibody which is quickly released at elevated temperatures, ensuring the enzyme is active only during PCR. There is no need for prolonged heating or denaturation steps.

The optional use of 5× PCR Enhancer improves PCR results in many cases, including impure template or low template abundance.

Choose from different product formulations

The regular formulation of biotechrabbit™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase has a buffer without magnesium and a separate vial of magnesium chloride so you can optimize reactions yourself.

The "Convenient" version has a fixed magnesium chloride concentration included in the reaction buffer that will work very well for most PCRs.

This product is also available as Master Mix and with Green gel loading dye.
