- How do I store my oligos and what is their stability?
- What level of purification do I need for my PCR primers?
- Can you compare the DNA polymerases you offer by fidelity, maximum amplicon length, and 3′ A-overhang?
- Does Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase High Fidelity enzyme mix leave 3′-A overhangs on the PCR product for subsequent cloning into a TOPO® TA or original TA vector?
- Can you suggest some guidelines that will help me design my PCR primers?
- I received my primer order, but the yield is lower than the scale that I ordered. Why is this?
- I’m getting no bands from my PCR product. What could cause this?
- What can I do to eliminate nonspecific bands in my PCR?
- I’m seeing smearing after PCR. What is causing this?
- I’m getting low yield of the desired fragment. What am I doing wrong and how can I increase my yield?
