Taq Polymerase is an affordable, versatile and robust polymerase for routine PCR applications (up to 4 kb fragment length). The enzyme works for most PCR reactions and primer-template combinations and the very robust enzyme-buffer system guarantees robust and reliable amplification.

Hot Start Polymerases are ideal for detection of low copy number templates. The polymerase activity is blocked at ambient temperature and switched on automatically at the onset of the initial denaturation, provide improved specificity and sensitivity.

Our HiFi Polymerases have 50x higher fidelity than Taq Polymerase and are specially designed for highly accurate and efficient amplification. They show excellent results with extremely long (up to 30 kb), GC-rich or other difficult templates.
