Direct PCR Kits — Terra PCR Direct Polymerase Mix

Skip sample preparation and go directly to PCR.

Terra PCR Direct saves you time and money by allowing you to skip DNA extraction and purification, and go directly to PCR amplification. Terra PCR Direct contains a novel DNA polymerase that lets you amplify directly from animal and plant tissues, as well as from crude DNA extracts. This highly sensitive DNA polymerase also lets you save precious samples, by requiring only a small amount of DNA template. Terra PCR Direct comes preblended with a monoclonal antibody for automatic hot start PCR, lets you easily amplify DNA targets up to 2 kb, and amplifies difficult templates (even when the GC-content is greater than 70%).

We have five Terra PCR Direct Kits formulated for different samples types and applications:

  • Polymerase Mix: This kit fits most applications, and has been improved with the inclusion of proteinase K to enhance gel detection of the PCR product.
  • Red Dye Premix: This kit simplifies PCR set-up to a single tube. It also includes a specially-formulated loading dye that separates during gel electrophoresis.
  • Genotyping Kit: This kit includes an extraction buffer and separate loading dye, to handle the broadest range of samples and provide the most robust performance.
  • Card & FFPE Kits: These kits are designed to process samples preserved on Whatman FTA cards or using FFPE fixation.
