Ultra-Pure Taq DNA Polymerase 1.2

Ultra-Pure Taq DNA Polymerase 1.2 (10X PCR Buffer premixed with MgSO4) is a thermostable enzyme which is purified to reduce levels of contaminating DNA, making it well suited for PCR and sensitive experiments using bacterial templates or random primers. The high purity of this Taq DNA Polymerase makes it ideal in detecting and identifying bacterial DNA, and is a more accurate method for mutation scanning techniques while preventing the amplification of undesired DNA sequences. Ultra-Pure Taq DNA Polymerase is suitable for work in bacterial genomics due to the reduced probability of contamination leading to non-specific amplification or artifacts during PCR reactions. The amplified products are up to 8 kb with 3’ adenosine residues and are ready to use directly in TA cloning.
