Thermo Scientific Phire Plant Direct PCR Master Mix is designed to amplify DNA directly from plant samples. No DNA purification is required prior to PCR. The kit is based on Phire Hot Start II DNA Polymerase, a specially engineered enzyme with a DNA binding domain. The unique features of this DNA polymerase make it extremely robust and tolerant of many PCR inhibitors present in plant material like complex polysaccharides, polyphenols and others.

Phire Plant Direct PCR Master Mix has been tested with leaves and seeds from a wide variety of plant species as well as fungi, bacteria and yeast. The kit includes a complete set of optimized reagents and detailed protocols making it an ideal choice for amplification of plant DNA.


• Direct PCR—sample is added directly to PCR reaction, therefore there is no need for time-consuming and expensive DNA purification steps.
• Dilution & Storage protocol available—allows tens of PCR reactions from one tiny sample and allows re-testing
• Specially engineered Phire Hot Start II DNA polymerase—extremely short PCR protocol times
• Master Mix format with premixed gel loading dye—minimizes possibility of cross-contamination, reduces sample handling and allows direct loading on gel


• Genotyping
• Transgene detection
• Knockout analysis
• Sequencing

The optimal annealing temperature for Phire DNA Polymerases may differ significantly from that of Taq-based polymerases.

For optimal results start by accurately calculating your Tm with our Tm calculator.
