Description

General description

Hot start polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is effortless using the FastStart PCR Master, a ready-to-use, double-concentrated hot start master mix. This master mix contains FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase, Roche high quality PCR-Grade nucleotides and all other reagents required for PCR and two-step reverse transcriptase (RT)-PCR on thermal cycler instruments.
FastStart PCR Master accepts modified nucleotides such as Digoxigenin (DIG)-dUTP. Labeling with DIG-dUTP can be achieved by adding the modified nucleotide in a final concentration of 10 μM to the final volume.
Combine this master mix with Roche′s Transcriptor First Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit to achieve excellent results in two-step RT-PCR.

Application

The FastStart PCR Master is a convenient alternative to the single reagents for nearly all hot start PCR applications. It can be applied for the amplification of genomic DNA and cDNA targets up to 2 kb long, or longer fragments on plasmid DNA targets, with high specificity, sensitivity, and yield. The enzyme is inactive at +15 to +25°C during PCR setup, and then activated at +95°C during initial denaturation. It can be used for:
• Hot Start PCR up to 2 kb
• Hot Start RT-PCR up to 2 kb
• High-throughput PCR
• Direct colony PCR

Features and Benefits

The FastStart Master has modified recombinant FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase, inactive at temperatures below +75°C. The kit also contains an optimized PCR buffer and GC-RICH Solution for handling a wide range of templates.

• Higher specificity, sensitivity, and yield:
Hot start PCR makes PCR setup easier.
• Use robotic setup.
Use this enyzme mix stable for 24 hours at +15 to +25°C.
• Reduce Setup time.
Store master mixes at +2 to +8°C for immediate use for up to one month.

Contents
