HotJump Taq & HotJump Taq LA

HotJump Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase is a combination of built-in and inhibition-modified recombinant Taq DNA polymerase. The enzyme is inactive at room temperature, avoiding extension of non-specifically annealed primers or primer dimers and providing higher specificity and sensitivity of DNA amplification. The functional activity of the enzyme is restored during a short 5 minute incubation at 95°C. The activated enzyme maintains the same functionality as Taq DNA polymerase.

HotJump Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase LA version is also available, which allows for amplification of longer products with higher fidelity and accuracy.

HotJump and HotJump Taq LA Mix is available as a ready-to-use 2X mixture of DNA polymerase, salts, magnesium and dNTPs for setting up a trouble-free PCR reaction and there is the choice of an inert green dye, used for direct gel loading. All you have to do is to add template, specific primers and water (Click here).
