HelixAmp™ Premium-Taq Polymerase PCR enzymes Selection Guide    

● anti-Taq antibody complex
● Automatic Hot-start PCR
● Extreme specificity and sensitivity
● PMT (Polymerase Modulator on Temperature) technology


HelixAmp™ Premium-Taq polymerase is an anti-Taq antibody complex form of Taq polymerase and ideal for automatic hot-start PCR.The inhibitory anti-Taq antibody inactivates the polymerase by binding at low temperature and suppresses the polymerization from non-specifically bound primers which occurs during the setting of PCR mix and the temperature going up in the PCR machine. At the high temperature of the initial denaturation step of PCR, the antibody is released by denaturation and the free Taq DNA polymerase becomes active. Unlike chemically modified hot-start Taq polymerase, this enzyme needs not prolonged (10 to 15 min.) incubation at above 94℃ to be active. NanoHelix' "PMT(Polymerase n 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.?In case of PCR amplification of target DNA with high G+C content or structural problem, such as repeat sequence, N-Solution™ will improve the specificity and productivity of the reactions.

Figure 1. Comparison of HelixAmp™ Premium-Taq polymerase with other company’s hot start versions of DNA polymerases. 12 different primer sets designed from human genome were used in this PCR. PCR was performed using 10 ng of human genomic DNA under various annealing temperature. A : NanoHelix, B : Company I[Korea], C : Company I[USA], D : Company T[Japan].

Figure 2. Superior performance of HelixAmp™ Premium-Taq polymerase on difficult targets. Different primer sets (ApoE, MD, Prion, COMT) designed from the indicated region of human genome were used in this PCR. PCRs were performed using 10 ng of human genomic DNA. All of the DNA polymerases are hot-start versions of each brands. A: Company T[Japan], B: Company I[Korea], C: Company B[Korea], D: Company I[USA], E: Company S[Korea], F: Premium-Taq [NanoHelix].
