SpeedSTAR HS DNA Polymerase is optimized for fast PCR. With an extension rate as fast as 10 sec/kb (compared to 60 sec/kb with standard Taq DNA polymerase), SpeedSTAR DNA polymerase dramatically reduces total reaction time. Fast PCR with SpeedSTAR can be performed using standard PCR machines, eliminating the requirement for special equipment.
With two optimized buffers, Fast Buffer I and II, SpeedSTAR DNA polymerase provides efficient amplification across a wide size range (up to 20 kb) with less optimization than other polymerases. In addition, the antibody-mediated hot-start formulation provides high specificity.
