A new generation of polymerase offering improved performance, sensitivity, speed and robustness when amplifying targets from any template.
- Sensitive: incorporates MyTaq DNA polymerase that exhibits higher affinity for DNA, thus enhancing the amplification of even limited amounts of template.
- Efficient: the novel buffer system maximizes the efficiency of PCR amplification, providing improved performance of any PCR product
- Robust and reliable amplification in the presence of inhibitors and even with the most challenging DNA targets
- Flexible – ideal for amplifying any target up to 5 kb of DNA extracted from human, animal and plant samples
- Convenient – Buffer system includes a red tint to improve pipetting ease/accuracy and to allow direct gel loading
- Fast – Developed to provide robust, reproducible and sensitive amplification of a wider range of targets under fast thermal cycling conditions
MyTaq ™ Red DNA Polymerase is recommended for all standard PCR applications. This product’s MyTaq DNA Polymerase and MyTaq Red Reaction Buffer are a unique combination of next-generation polymerase and a novel buffer system that offers very high-throughput PCR amplification on a wide range of PCR templates.
MyTaq has a higher affinity for DNA, allowing reliable amplification even from very low amounts of template. MyTaq DNA Polymerase has been developed to provide more robust amplification than other commonly-used polymerases, allowing it to work well with challenging templates and in the presence of PCR inhibitors. Furthermore, the highly efficient nature of MyTaq means that it offers excellent results under fast PCR conditions.
The enzyme is supplied with a red MyTaq 5x Reaction Buffer that increases the visual contrast between the reagent and the reaction vessel for convenience and to improve pipetting accuracy. The red dye also allows samples to be loaded directly onto a gel after PCR without the need to add a loading buffer.
Additionally, MyTaq Red Reaction Buffer contains dNTPs, MgCl2, and enhancers in optimal concentrations, helping to eliminate the need for optimization, saving time, effort, and the cost of performing unnecessary assay retests.
