PCR Master Mixes

PCR master mixes provide the key ingredients necessary for performing PCR in a premixed and optimized format that streamlines and simplifies the PCR workflow. Master mixes come pre-mixed and pre-measured containing DNA polymerase, salts, magnesium, dNTPs and optimized reaction buffer. Your template and primers are the only additions necessary to perform PCR.

Life Technologies offers several PCR master mixes that have been optimized to amplify a wide range of templates and accommodate the performance needs. These master mixes provide superior results for routine hot-start, high-fidelity, and high-specificity amplification.
