Z-Taq DNA Polymerase

TaKaRa Z-Taq DNA Polymerase has greater processivity than standard Taq DNA polymerase and allows rapid PCR amplification. Using Z-Taq polymerase, a 1 kb DNA fragment can be amplified from genomic DNA in 20 minutes total (using a 30-cycle, two-step amplification protocol). The improved processivity of Z-Taq enzyme also enables the amplification of longer fragments than standard Taq DNA polymerase; human genomic DNA templates up to 17.5 kb, and lambda DNA templates of 20 kb have been successfully amplified.
