Platinum® Taq Antibody is a proprietary inhibitor which, when bound to Taq DNA polymerase, inactivates polymerase activity. This reagent provides an automatic “hot start” for Taq DNA polymerase in PCR. Hot starts are typically used in PCR to increase sensitivity, specificity, and yield while allowing assembly of reactions at ambient temperatures. The extra time, effort, and contamination risks associated with manual hot start procedures are addressed with the use of Platinum® Taq Antibody.
