Long Taq Polymerase

Long Taq Polymerase
Long Taq DNA Polymerase, a combination of two thermostable DNA polymerase, Taq and Pfu, is a special formulation designed for amplifying large fragments. This specially formulated Long Taq was shown to amplify long templates from ƛ phage genome up to 20 kb. It is also a better choice for amplifying complex template, such as GC-rich templates. Long Taq is suitable as a direct replacement for ordinary Taq Polymerase in most applications. Using Long Taq in your PCR reactions results in 3′ -dA overhangs PCR products, which can be used in TA clones.

Long Taq Polymerase Mix
2X Long Taq Mix is a pre-mixed, ready-to-use solution containing Long Taq DNA Polymerase, dNTPs, MgCl2 and Reaction Buffer at optimal concentrations for efficient amplification of DNA templates by PCR. To prepare the final PCR, primers and template DNA are added directly to the aliquots. Long Taq Mix contributes to highly reproducible PCR by reducing the risk of pipetting errors, miscalculation and contamination. It also contributes to higher sensitivity by add enhancer.
