The Applied Biosystems AmpliTaq360 DNA Polymerase, when used with the new enhanced AmpliTaq 360 Buffer and the optional 360 GC Enhancer, amplifies a vast range of DNA sequence contexts. Compared to the original AmpliTaq DNA polymerase, AmpliTaq 360 polymerase is purified by an additional proprietary separation process which reduces contaminating bacterial DNA sequences from the enzyme preparation. This ultra-pure enzyme reduces false positive results, amplifies low-level target sequences, and when combined with the proprietary AmpliTaq 360 Buffer Kit, promotes the amplification of a variety of templates including those from bacterial and human genomes.

• Optimized for the broadest range of targets—from everyday to challenging
• Unmatched sensitivity and yield
• Market-leading GC enhancer for robust amplification of GC-rich sequences
• Achieves the highest quality sequencing data

For superior PCR performance, we recommend DreamTaq DNA Polymerase.
