Thermo Scientific Thermo-Start Taq DNA Polymerase is a chemically modified version of ThermoPrime Taq DNA Polymerase that remains completely inactive during reaction set up to prevent non-specific amplification and primer dimer formation. This enzyme requires an activation step at 95°C for 15 minutes.


• Hot start modification ensures stringent specificity
• Safe for room temperature reaction setup
• Enhanced enzyme stability for increased yield and sensitivity
• Advanced buffering system minimizes PCR optimization steps


• Amplifying fragments up to 5 kb
• Hot start PCR
