Here is what customers who have tried a sample are saying about TaKaRa Ex Taq DNA Polymerase.
We appreciate your feedback about Clontech and Takara samples you try!
"I used it for TOPO cloning, worked well!" ~Daad Abi-Ghanem, IMMUNOLOGY CONSULTANTS LABORATORY INC
"We were very pleased to find that it was the only enzyme that provided robust amplification of single genes housed on single copy number plasmids. We didn't need to use very much template at all to do this reaction which was even better since our templte was from a whole genomic DNA preparation that does not enrich for the plasmids." ~Viveka Vadyvaloo, WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY
"works very well," ~Han Jiang, OREGON HEALTH & SCI UNIVERSITY
"In order to make an overexpressing plasmid, I used PrimeScript 1st Strand cDNA Synthesis kit and TaKaRa Ex Taq DNA Polymerase Hot Start Version. Cloning was perfect. They get easier to make plasmids." ~Koji Ueno, UNIV OF CALIF SAN FRANCISCO
"It certainly did the trick with the PCR. It worked better for me than the other polymerases I was using." ~Ramya Enganti, UNIV OF TENNESSEE
"The Ex Taq is great, I got my 6 PCR products in one time!" ~Jianbo Wang, UNIV OF HOUSTON
"it is perfect and I am very happy with the results." ~Darpan Saraswat, UNIV AT BUFFALO
"The polymerase worked well for a protocol to amplify from yeast genomic DNA, which I was not able to do with the other polymerase we already have in lab. I have already purchased some more TaKaRa Ex Taq for future genotyping." ~Shar-yin Huang, NIH
"1.ExTaq gives robost product even in case of very little template and provides enough product for sequencing. 2. There are hardly any errors in the amplification product and so we plan to use it for cloning purposes. 3. It gives clean and clear bands. In our lab we are hooked to ExTaq and I paln to use it regularly." ~Anju Verma, UNIV OF MISSOURI
"I use Ex taq for all of my cloning experiments. In rare cases, I need to amplify DNA ranging in size from 17 to 23kb, in which I use LA Taq. TaKaRa products always work for me, and I intend to remain a loyal client as I transition from a post-doctoral researcher to assistant professor." ~MELISSA OLIVER, WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY
"Takara Ex Taq amplify better than pfu from Stratagene, and also has high fidelity. I prefer Ex Taq than pfu." ~Qin Yan, DUKE UNIVERSITY
"We used it for making plasmid and for methylation analysis. Using your TaKaRa Ex Taq DNA polymerase, PCR is perfect!! Thank you!" ~Hiroshi Hirata, VAMC San Francisco and UCSF
