Exceptional Performance from an Optimized Mix (2X)
Accurate genotype assignments result from preferential binding of the allele-specific probe to the matching target. TaqMan™ Genotyping Master Mix enables specific binding of the probe to achieve exceptional cluster resolution. Key features include:
  • AmpliTaq Gold™ DNA Polymerase, UP (Ultra Pure) - Automatic hot start enzyme designed to be active during thermal cycling and inactive at room temperature for easy reaction setup
  • Optimized mix components provide excellent specificity for discrimination between alleles
  • Passive internal reference based on proprietary ROX™ dye for increased precision on Applied Biosystems™ real-time PCR instruments
  • Single thermal cycling condition for consistent results with TaqMan™ Assays

Validated with TaqMan™ Genotyping Assays and Instruments:
  • TaqMan™ Genotyping Master Mix has been tested across all types of TaqMan™ SNP Genotyping Assays: TaqMan™ Drug Metabolism Genotyping Assays, TaqMan™ SNP Genotyping Assays, and Custom TaqMan™ SNP Genotyping Assays
  • In addition, the master mix is validated with the Applied Biosystems™ thermal cyclers and real-time PCR systems

High-Throughput Setup and Analysis:
  • The combination of several low-cost thermal cyclers for PCR and a single real-time PCR instrument for allelic discrimination make high throughput SNP genotyping manageable
  • TaqMan™ Genotyping Master Mix further improves high-throughput setup and analysis with excellent room temperature stability both before and after PCR
  • This provides the flexibility required to run long experiments, unattended overnight or over a weekend

Reliable Discrimination with Challenging Targets
  • Amplicon design constraints make SNP detection challenging, particularly when targets contain an abundance of GC- or AT-rich regions
  • The optimized components of TaqMan™ Genotyping Master Mix result in tight, well-separated clusters and more accurate allele-calls compared to other mixes, even for challenging targets

Setting the Industry Standard for Quality:
  • Extensive analytical and functional tests are performed for each manufactured lot of TaqMan™ Genotyping Master Mix, including one TaqMan™ SNP Genotyping Assay and one TaqMan™ Drug Metabolism Genotyping Assay
  • Results are compiled in an informative Certificate of Analysis, which is accessible through the Applied Biosystems™ Web site
