VitaTaq® DNA Polymerase is a thermostable DNA Polymerase that synthesizes DNA from single stranded templates. The enzyme has a 5’-3’ polymerase activity and low 5’-3’ exonuclease activity. Together with the 10X Reaction Buffer, it can work with a broad variety templates and provides robust and reliable amplification results.
VitaTaq® PCR Kit contains VitaTaq® DNA Polymerase and an optimized 10X Reaction Buffer for maximum flexibility regarding the reaction setup.
- Routine PCR for fragments up to 5 kb
- Colony PCR
- High-throughput PCR
- Realtime PCR
- Cycle sequencing
One unit of Taq DNA Polymerase is the amount of enzyme required to incorporate 10 nmoles of deoxyribonucleotide into DNA in 30 min at 74°C.
