Thermo Scientific Maxima Hot Start Green PCR Master Mix (2X) is a ready-to-use solution containing chemically modified Maxima Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase, optimized hot start PCR buffer, Mg2+, and dNTPs. The enzyme is inactive at room temperature, avoiding extension of non-specifically annealed primers or primer dimers and providing higher specificity of DNA amplification. The functional activity of the enzyme is restored during a short 4 minute incubation at 95°C. The activated enzyme maintains the same functionality as Taq DNA polymerase. It is capable of amplification of up to 3 kb from genomic DNA.

The master mix is supplemented with two tracking dyes and a density reagent that allows for direct loading of PCR products on a gel. The dyes in the master mix do not interfere with PCR performance and are compatible with downstream applications such as DNA sequencing, ligation and restriction digestion.
