Taq Plus Polymerase

Taq Plus DNA Polymerase
Taq Plus DNA Polymerase is a mixture of Taq and Pfu polymerases, combines the processivity of Taq with the high fidelity of Pfu. The two enzymes act synergistically during PCR to generate more accurate and longer PCR products with greater yields compared to Taq DNA polymerase alone. It can amplify DNA target up to 20 kb (simple template) and it is suitable as a direct replacement for ordinary Taq Polymerase in most applications. It is a better choice for amplifying complex templates, such as GC-rich templates. PCR products amplified by Taq plus generate a mixture of blunt ends and single base (A) 3′ overhang. The error rate is 7.5 x 10-5/nucleotide/cycle.

Taq Plus DNA Polymerase Mix
Taq Plus Mix (2X) is a pre-mixed, ready-to-use solution containing Plus DNA Polymerase, dNTPs, Mg2+ and Reaction Buffer at optimal concentrations for efficient amplification of DNA templates in PCR. To prepare the final PCR, primers and template DNA are directly added to the aliquoted Plus Mix. Plus Mix contributes to highly reproducible PCR by reducing the risk of pipetting errors, miscalculation and contamination. It also contributes to higher sensitivity by adding enhancers.
