Thermo Scientific Phire Tissue Direct PCR Master Mix has been developed for amplification of DNA directly from a wide variety of tissues obtained from mice, human, fish, birds and insects. The Master Mix containing Phire Hot Start II DNA Polymerase is specially formulated to perform PCR in the presence of different animal tissue-derived inhibitors such as collagen, melanin and eumelanin (hair, skin) or myoglobin (muscle). The kit also includes Thermo Scientific DNARelease Additive, which can be used to improve the release of DNA from difficult tissues.


• 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 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.
