    Overhang 3'-A
    Polymerase Platinum™ Taq DNA Polymerase
    Quantity 5000 reactions
    Size (Final Product) 10 kb or less
    Storage Requirements Store at -30° to -10°C. Do not store in a frost-free freezer.

    Use Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase for the amplification of DNA from complex genomic, viral, and plasmid templates, as well as in RT-PCR. The “hot start” property of the enzyme preparation is conferred by thermolabile monoclonal antibodies that render Taq DNA polymerase inactive until the initial PCR denaturation step.

    • Convenience: assemble PCR reactions at room temperature
    • Specificity: “hot start” kinetics reduce nonspecific primer annealing, improving product yield
    • Product size: use for PCR products up to 10kb
    • Flexibility: optional KB Extender gives more versatility in PCR assays

    Using PlatinumTaq DNA Polymerase

    • Just as with Taq DNA Polymerase, Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase has a nontemplate-dependent terminal transferase activity that adds a 3' deoxyadenosine to product ends, and has a 5'3' exonuclease activity (but not 3'5' exonuclease activity)
    • PCR products generated with PlatinumTaq DNA Polymerase may be used in the same downstream applications without protocol modifications
