It provides best in class performance, including the widest quantifiable range, in both single and duplex reactions, even with challenging targets. TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix contains AmpliTaq Fast DNA Polymerase, uracil-N-glycosylase (UNG), dNTPs with dUTP, ROX dye (passive reference), and optimized buffer components. It is supplied at a 2X concentration.

Features of the TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix include:
Best-in-class performance—superior sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range, and specificity compared to standard mixes in standard mode
Engineered for enhanced benchtop stability—stable at room temperature for up to 72 hours in preassembled reactions
Optimized for multiplexing—validated for duplexing with exogenous and endogenous internal positive control assays
Reduced run times (<40 minutes) on fast and standard instrumentation—optimized for fast mode on fast instruments and fast cycling conditions on standard instruments
Seamlessly transitions into your experiments—validated with TaqMan assays for gene expression and microRNAs, and TaqMan array micro-fluidic cards

Best-in-class performance
TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been designed to provide performance equal to or better than standard master mixes. It has been benchmarked against the leading suppliers' standard and fast master mixes to help ensure that it succeeds in providing best-in-class sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range, and specificity. TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix’s dynamic range (up to 7 logs) is the widest in the industry. The impressive sensitivity of the mix is showcased in the figure below which compares the Ct values of TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix and TaqMan Universal PCR Master Mix across a panel of gene expression assays.

Benchtop stability for high-throughput handling and convenience
TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been engineered to retain a high level of performance in preassembled reactions for up to 72 hours. The stability of this mix provides users of high-throughput liquid handling systems the assurance that the results on the first plate will mimic those of the last plate. The figure below shows an assay that was run upon assembly (time 0) and after 72 hours of incubation at 30°C, simulating the most extreme room temperature scenario.

For those with less extreme throughput needs, the enhanced stability of this master mix provides an overall added convenience to your workflow, as you are no longer constrained to immediately running plates upon assembly.

Optimized for multiplexing
We realize that confidence is paramount when it comes to your results. For added confidence in the results in every well, TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been designed to help deliver accurate results for duplex reactions using an internal positive control (IPC). The figure below shows results for the experimental target β-actin (gene name: ACTB), which was serially diluted and amplified in single-target reactions and duplex reactions.

Validated for microRNA assays
TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been validated for use with multiple real-time PCR applications, including microRNA assays. The formulation provides high specificity and dynamic range, the two most critical performance attributes that define successful results when working with microRNAs. The data in the figure below demonstrate excellent PCR linearity over a 6-log range of input template.

Reduced run times on standard instrumentation
TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been optimized for use with both fast and standard instrumentation, enabling researchers who currently own standard instruments to also reap the performance benefits and time savings this mix provides. The figure below showcases the impressive results achieved when using TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix under fast thermal cycling conditions on the Applied Biosystems 7300 Real-Time PCR System. The mix has been tested with all Applied Biosystems standard real-time PCR instrumentation (7900HT, 7500, and 7300 systems) to enable success independent of whether or not you own a fast-enabled instrument.

PowerUp™ SYBR™ Green Master Mix (Applied Biosystems™)

PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix is a pre-formulated, optimized, universal 2X master mix for real-time PCR workflows. Coupled with user-supplied primer sets and template, PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix is designed to amplifiy targets for accurate gene expression analysis.

PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix features include:
• A dual hot-start mechanism for excellent specificity
• Highly reproducible CTs over a broad dynamic range
• Inclusion of UDG to help prevent carryover contamination
• Stability of pre-assembled reactions for up to 72 hours
• Compatibility with most real-time qPCR instruments

Exceptional specificity with dual hot-start mechanism
Specificity is paramount in obtaining high-quality data in SYBR® Green reactions and can be enhanced through control of the Taq DNA polymerase at lower temperatures before stringent primer binding. PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix uses the Dual-Lock™ Taq DNA polymerase enzyme that combines two unique hot-start mechanisms to help control its activity and to prevent undesirable early activity of the polymerase at low temperatures. In an experiment evaluating 24 different primer sets, PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix generated single melt curves 100% of the time, consistent with highly specific amplification.

Tight reproducibility in CTs over a wide dynamic range
PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix demonstrates excellent reproducibility over a wide dynamic range for a variety of targets tested (see figure). In addition, this master mix provides efficient amplification over 6 logs of sample input. Unlike competitor mixes that can exhibit inhibition at high cDNA inputs and low correlation coefficients over a dynamic range experiment, PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix efficiency is maintained over the full dynamic range to help deliver maximal confidence in data quality (see figure).

UDG included for carryover contamination control
The inclusion of uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) and dUTP in the PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix enables the degradation of any previously amplified PCR products, helping prevent contamination of subsequent qPCR reactions and possible false positives.

Stability of pre-assembled reactions
The tight control of the Dual-Lock™ Taq DNA polymerase in PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix enables reactions to be assembled up to 72 hours prior to cycling without impacting data (see figure). This consistency allows users to have confidence and flexibility in the use of PowerUP™ SYBR® Green Master Mix across numerous workflow scenarios1.

Broad instrument compatibility
PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix can be used in either standard or fast cycling mode and is compatible with all Applied Biosystems® real-time PCR instruments2. It is also compatible with the Bio-Rad IQ™5 and CFX96™ / CFX384™ systems, Roche LightCycler® LC480, and Stratagene® MX3005P® systems. For optimal results, recommended primer concentrations are 300–800 nM.

Best-in-class Performance
TaqMan® Multiplex Master Mix is designed for performance equal to or better than other multiplex master mixes on the market. TaqMan® Multiplex Master Mix has been benchmarked against the leading suppliers' multiplex master mixes to help ensure that it succeeds in providing best-in-class sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range, and specificity.

Reduced Run Times on Standard Instrumentation
TaqMan® Multiplex Master Mix has been optimized for use with both fast and standard instrumentation, enabling researchers who currently own standard instruments to also reap the performance benefits and time savings this mix provides.

Carry-over Contamination Control
TaqMan® Multiplex Master Mix contains heat-labile uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) for worry-free carryover contamination control. The dUTP in the mix ensures that any amplified DNA will contain uracil, while UDG removes uracil residues from single- or double-stranded DNA, preventing dU-containing DNA from serving as template in future PCRs. A UDG incubation step before PCR cycling destroys any contaminating dU-containing product from previous reactions. UDG is then inactivated by the high temperatures during normal PCR cycling, thereby allowing the amplification of genuine target sequences.

Instrument Compatibility
TaqMan® Multiplex Master Mix can be used in fast cycling mode on both standard and fast qPCR instruments, such as: 7500 Real-Time PCR System, 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System, ViiA™ 7 Real-Time PCR System, and QuantStudio™ 6 Flex, 7 Flex, and 12K Flex Real-Time PCR systems.
