Empirical’s FlashTaq™ HotStart DNA Polymerase is a chemically modified hot-start polymerase designed for reducing non-specific DNA amplification due to primer-dimer formation.
FlashTaq™ HotStart has one of the fastest activation times on the market at only two minutes at 95°C, resulting in faster cycling and fewer program changes. Chemical modification keeps FlashTaq™ HotStart free of any contaminating DNA from modifying agents (such as antibodies).
Empirical’s FlashTaq™ HotStart DNA Polymerase offers fast activation: FlashTaq™ HotStart DNA Polymerase amplifies a 750bp fragment with only a two-minute initial denaturation. A leading competitor will amplify only after 10-minute activation and is less robust than FlashTaq™ HotStart.
