HelixAmp™ Taq-Plus Polymerase PCR enzymes Selection Guide    

● Broad range of annealing temperature
● PMT (Polymerase Modulator on Temperature)technology
● Extreme productivity
● Minimize non-specific amplification and primer-dimer formation


Description

HelixAmp™ Taq-Plus polymerase is an improved form of HelixAmp™ Taq polymerase and amplifies target DNA at broad-range of annealing temperature. NanoHelix’s “PMT (polymerase modulator on temperature) technology” is applied in the buffer system, which is effective to reduce primer-dimer formation and non-specific amplification during the PCR. This enzyme is an optimized blend of HelixAmp™ Taq polymerase and HelixAmp™ Power-Pfu polymerase.HelixAmp™ Taq-Plus polymerase possesses the greater yield, processivity and fidelity than normal Taq polymerase. The fidelity of HelixAmp™ Taq-Plus polymerase is higher approximately 4 times than that of Taq polymerase. In case of PCR amplification of target DNA with high G+C content or structural problem, such as repeat sequence, the application of TuneUp™ solution improves the specificity and productivity of the reaction.
