Invitrogen™ Platinum™ PCR SuperMix is a ready-to-use mixture of DNA polymerase, salts, magnesium, and dNTPs for efficient PCR amplification. All you have to do is add template and primers. Platinum PCR SuperMix:

• Allows for room temperature reaction assembly
• Amplifies fragments up to 5 kb
• Produces products with 3'-A ends
• Improves PCR specificity

Using Platinum PCR SuperMix
Platinum PCR SuperMix is for high-specificity DNA amplification. High specificity is provided by a mixture of recombinant Taq DNA Polymerase and Platinum monoclonal antibodies to Taq DNA Polymerase. Automatic "hot-start" improves the specificity of PCR. Taq DNA Polymerase is activated during the initial denaturation step.

Platinum PCR SuperMix is supplied at 1.1X concentration to allow approximately 10% of the final reaction volume to be used for the addition of primer and template solutions. For variable sample volumes exceeding 10% of the final reaction, we recommend using convenient Platinum™ Hot Start PCR 2X Master Mix. Learn more about Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase
