Taq PCRx DNA Polymerase is recombinant Taq DNA polymerase supplied with the PCRx Enhancer System for optimizing PCR of problematic and/or GC-rich templates. With Taq PCRx DNA Polymerase you'll get:

• Higher primer specificity, broader magnesium concentration, broader annealing temperature, and improved thermostabilty of Taq DNA polymerase
• Amplification of PCR products up to 5 kb in size
• A system that is licensed and qualified for PCR

Applications: Amplification of DNA from complex genomic, viral, and plasmid templates; and RT-PCR. Especially effective for problematic tem-plates such as GC-rich DNA.
Unit Definition: One unit incorporates 10 nmol of deoxyribonucleotide into DNA in 30 min at 74°C.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
