Taq Mix

50% (v/v)2X Taq Mix is a premixed, ready-to-use solution containing Taq DNA Polymerase, dNTPs, Mg2+ 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. This pre-mixed formulation saves time and reduces contamination due to the fewer pipetting steps required for PCR set up. The mix retains all features of Taq DNA Polymerase.
