Samurai Taq™ DNA Polymerase
A highly purified, low DNA Taq polymerase, Samurai Taq™ is designed for a wide range of gene amplification applications. Intended for academic and research use, the Taq polymerase is priced affordably for students, teachers, and researchers.
● Low DNA background perfect for gene amplification
● Best Research Value – highly purified DNA Taq polymerase – minimal DNA
● Gene Amplification (PCR) and Sequencing
● Pyrosequencing and Sanger Sequencing
Samurai Taq™ DNA Polymerase is from Thermus aquaticus. It is a thermostable enzyme with 5’-3’ DNA polymerase activity and 5′-3’ exonuclease activity, while lacking 3’-5’ exonuclease (proofreading) or endo- activity. This enzyme is a recombinant protein produced and purified from an E. coli strain that carries the Taq DNA Polymerase gene from Thermus aquaticus YT-1

Notes: DNA templates should preferably be pure. Chemical agents, ionic detergents (such as SDS) and other DNA damaging agents should be avoided. For routine applications, 25 to 35 PCR cycles is usually enough to provide sufficient copies of the target sequence.
