Takara Hot start PCR Kits with UNG

  • Prevent amplification of carryover PCR products
  • Hot start for high specificity
TaKaRa Taq HS PCR Kit, UNG plus prevents false positive results caused by carryover of amplification products from previous reactions.

The kit allows amplification using TaKaRa Taq HS, a hot-start PCR enzyme, with dUTP instead of dTTP. Subsequent PCR reactions are pre-treated with uracil-N-glycosylase (UNG), an enzyme that cleaves uracil-containing DNA while leaving non-uracil-containing templates unaffected. This way, UNG will degrade any DNA that was carried over from a previous PCR reaction. Before the PCR is started UNG is heat inactivated, so amplification of the target DNA can take place.
