SupraTherm™ Taq DNA Polymerase is a thermostable Taq DNA polymerase purified from the Thermus aquaticus strain by several rounds of liquid chromatography. The purity of SupraTherm™ Taq DNA Polymerase is more then 90% of the total protein in the preparation. Amplification of DNA fragments (100 bp to 5 kb) can be achieved with it. The enzyme has both, 5'-3' polymerase- and 5'-3'exonuclease activities. SupraTherm™ can add a single template-directed deoxyadenosin (A) residue to the 3’ end of duplex PCR products. This property allows easy and efficient ligation of PCR products in TA cloning vectors.APPLICATION
The enzyme may be used for PCR, thermosequencing and for other research and diagnostic applications.CONCENTRATION
SupraTherm™ DNA Polymerase is the best enzyme for everyday routine applications. The enzyme has limited
application for PCR with low-abundance template (less then 100 DNA molecules of template). Please use for
PCR of low-abundance templates and for other more sophisticated techniques BioTherm™ DNA Polymerase.
