Trusted by researchers for years, the Platinum® Taq family of products provides hot-start specificity for reliable, robust PCR. A range of hot-start products is available that you can choose from to match your needs for fidelity and amplicon length.

Platinum® Taq DNA Polymerase

  • Antibody-mediated hot-start enzyme recommended for amplication of 3-10 kb targets
  • Fast activation times and minimal template degradation, which promotes the amplication of longer fragments
  • Less background and nonspecific PCR products, including primer-dimer products
  • Ideal for everyday PCR applications
