Description

Description

  • Certified low-DNA contamination level (≤0.01 copy of bacterial gDNA per enzyme unit)
  • Confidence in qualitative and quantitative detection of low-abundance microorganisms due to signal absence with no-template/reagents-only PCR controls
  • Same performance as Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase manufactured using conventional process

Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase, DNA-free, is a recombinant Taq polymerase complexed with a proprietary antibody that blocks polymerase activity at ambient temperatures and dissociates after the initial denaturation step at 94°C. This automatic hot start provides increased sensitivity, specificity, and yield, while allowing convenient reaction assembly at room temperature. Just as with Taq DNA Polymerase, Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase, DNA-free, has a non-template-dependent terminal transferase activity that adds a 3 ft. deoxyadenosine to product ends, and has a 5 ft. to 3 ft. exonuclease activity.

  • For the amplification of DNA from complex genomic and viral templates, as well as in RT-PCR
  • Ideal for PCR assays where higher sensitivity and specificity are needed to minimize ambiguous or false-positive results
