Use Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase for the amplification of DNA from complex genomic, viral, and plasmid templates, as well as in RT-PCR. The “hot start” property of the enzyme preparation is conferred by thermolabile monoclonal antibodies that render Taq DNA polymerase inactive until the initial PCR denaturation step.

  • Convenience: assemble PCR reactions at room temperature
  • Specificity: “hot start” kinetics reduce nonspecific primer annealing, improving product yield
  • Product size: use for PCR products up to 10kb
  • Flexibility: optional KB Extender gives more versatility in PCR assays

Using PlatinumTaq DNA Polymerase

  • Just as with Taq DNA Polymerase, Platinum Taq DNA Polymerase has a nontemplate-dependent terminal transferase activity that adds a 3' deoxyadenosine to product ends, and has a 5'→3' exonuclease activity (but not 3'→5' exonuclease activity)
  • PCR products generated with PlatinumTaq DNA Polymerase may be used in the same downstream applications without protocol modifications
