Thermo-Start DNA Polymerase

  • Built-in hot-start eliminates non-specific priming
  • Excellent sensitivity and specificity
  • Master mix formats available
Thermo-Start DNA Polymerase is a chemically modified version of Thermoprime Plus DNA Polymerase that is inactive until 'switched on' by high temperature incubation. The enzyme requires an activation step at 95°C for 15 minutes. To protect the enzyme at temperatures required for activation, a proprietary buffer is supplied with the enzyme. This ensures a maximal response from the enzyme once it has been activated, resulting in higher yields than those obtained with systems based on chemical modifications alone.

Thermostart Polymerase is available in a range of master mixes offering significant benefits: time savings in PCR preparation, reduced chance of errors and reproducible results.
