Description:EpiQuik Red Taq DNA Polymerase has a special formulation with added inert red dye. This makes it very suitable for standard applications. Strong red color of the enzyme allows user to check the polymerase addition and verify adequate mixing. Reaction products are ready for direct gel loading and the dye serves as marker for electrophoresis progress monitoring. EpiQuik Red Taq DNA Polymerase has 5’→3’ DNA synthesis activity.
Concentration 10 units/µl (one unit of the enzyme catalyzes the incorporation of 10 nanomoles of deoxyribonucleotides into a polynucleotide fraction in 30 min at 70°C).
Source Recombinant E. coli strain with cloned gene encoding Thermus aquaticus DNA polymerase.
Storage Conditions Store at -20°C. Guaranteed stable for 12 months when properly stored.
