Invitrogen™ Platinum™ Blue PCR SuperMix provides qualified reagents for the amplification of nucleic acid templates by PCR, and includes blue tracking dye for subsequent gel analysis. The reagents are premixed for high-throughput applications as well as general ease of use.

Using Platinum Blue PCR SuperMix
The mixture contains recombinant Platinum Taq DNA polymerase, Mg++, dNTPs, glycerol (used as a precipitant), and blue tracking dye. Platinum Blue PCR SuperMix is supplied at a 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 Green Hot Start PCR 2X Master Mix. Learn more about Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase

Hot-start specificity
Specific binding of the anti-Taq antibody inhibits polymerase activity at room temperature. Activity is restored after a denaturation step in PCR cycling at 94°C, providing an automatic "hot start" in PCR and improving specificity and yield.
