TaKaRa Taq DNA Polymerase and Premix Taq DNA Polymerase

TaKaRa Taq DNA Polymerase is a versatile and thermostable polymerase suitable for a variety of standard PCR applications. The enzyme is also supplied as a Premix Taq DNA polymerase (Cat. #R004A), a 2X PCR master mix containing Taq enzyme, buffer and dNTPs. This premix formulation simplifies PCR setup and minimizes pipetting steps. This is particularly helpful for high-throughput screening projects.

TaKaRa Taq DNA Polymerase is a recombinant and thermostable 94 kDa Taq polymerase encoded by a DNA polymerase gene derived from the Thermus aquaticus YT-1 strain and cloned into Escherichia coli. TaKaRa Taq DNA Polymerase has been demonstrated to have the same characteristics and capabilities as native Taq DNA polymerase.
