The enzyme is supplied without reaction buffer.
Proofreading blend for accurate amplification of genomic DNA targets up to 20 kb using PCR.
Enzyme blend consisting of Taq DNA Polymerase and Tgo DNA Polymerase.
- Amplify long templates.
Generate PCR products 5 to 20 kb in length from complex genomic DNA using this optimized enzyme blend.
- Achieve higher yields and fidelity.
Three times higher fidelity with higher yield compared to Taq DNA Polymerase.
- Amplify long templates.
- Use Expand Long Template PCR System for:
- Routine amplification of DNA fragments up to 20 kb from all DNA
- Amplification of DNA fragments up to 40 kb from λDNA
- Labeling of PCR products with modified nucleotides (e.g., DIG-dUTP, biotin-dUTP, fluorescein-dUTP)
- Combination with dUTP and Uracil-DNA Glycosylase for prevention of carryover contamination between PCR reactions
- Manufacture of amplification mixtures for regulated applications (e.g., in vitro diagnostics, quality control), including validation
Enzymes in the Expand Long Template PCR System were originally isolated from the thermophilic eubacteria Thermus aquaticus (Taq) BM and Thermococcus gorgonarius (Tgo), both expressed in E. coli.
