Description

General description

The FastStart High Fidelity PCR System is a blend of FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase and a thermostable proofreading protein, which is also chemically modified. This protein mediates proofreading activity, but carries no polymerase activity. Both proteins are inactive below +75 °C and are activated by heating to +95 °C for two minutes.

Hot start protocols have improved specificity, sensitivity, and PCR yield. Heat-labile blocking groups on amino acid residues of FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase make the enzyme inactive at room temperature. There is no elongation at low temperatures when primers bind nonspecifically. FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase is activated by removal of blocking groups using a preincubation step at +95°C. The FastStart High Fidelity PCR System is the product of choice for multiplex PCR.

• FastStart High Fidelity Enzyme Blend, (5 U/μl) in storage buffer
• FastStart High Fidelity Reaction Buffer, 10x concentrated, with 18 mM MgCl2
• FastStart High Fidelity Reaction Buffer, 10x concentrated, without MgCl2
• MgCl2 Stock Solution, 25 mM
• DMSO

Application

The FastStart High Fidelity PCR System — a new enzyme blend for hot start PCR — combines all the benefits of FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase with fourfold higher accuracy and the abilty to amplify fragments up to 5 kb.
• PCR
• Multiplex PCR
• RT-PCR
• GC-rich template amplification
• Difficult or challenging PCRs
• in the amplification of Human Papillomaviral genome and methylated DNA

The FastStart High Fidelity PCR System is the product of choice for multiplex PCR.
Use FastStart High Fidelity PCR System, dNTPack with ready-to-use PCR Nucleotide Mix.

Features and Benefits

• Achieve excellent multiplex performance.
• For fast high quality results, also use Roche′s PCR Optimization Kit.
• Increase fidelity.
• Achieve fourfold higher fidelity compared to Taq DNA Polymerase and FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase.
• Amplify challenging DNA.
• DMSO, a PCR additive, for working with difficult templates, is supplied.

Packaging

1 kit containing 5 components

Quality

Each lot is PCR function-tested using human genomic DNA and primers specific for a 1.8 kb fragment of the EPO gene, and primers specific for a 4.8 kb fragment of the tPA gene.

Unit Definition

One unit of FastStart Taq DNA Polymerase is defined as the amount of enzyme that incorporates 10 nmol of total desoxyribonucleotide triphosphates into acid precipitable DNA within 60 min at +65 °C

Volume Activity: 5 U/μl

Preparation Note

Working concentration: For a standard 50 μl PCR, we recommend using 2.5 U of the enzyme blend.

Other Notes

For life science research only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
