Chemically-Modified Taq Polymerase

Empirical Bioscience (formerly known as Syzygy Biotech), introduces FlashTaq HotStart Hot-Start Taq DNA Polymerase, a chemically-modified Taq polymerase designed to reduce non-specific amplification in PCR. The enzyme offers fewer contamination issues and a fast activation time. Under standard hot start conditions, it can be activated and the enzyme recovers both 5′-3′ polymerase and 5′-exonuclease activities within two minutes. FlashTaq HotStart’s stability and rapid activation time, in addition to the type of modifying reagent that it uses, helps streamline studies….
