Product information "PCRbeam™ Fast PCR Detection Kit"
highQu PCRbeam™ Fast PCR Detection Kit is a convenient tool for fast detection of gene-specific amplification products obtained by PCR, LAMP or RPA. The detection is based on immunological reaction driven by Biotin and FITC (fluorescein isothiocyanate), thus the amplified DNA shall include Biotin and FITC labels. The PCR amplification has to be performed with one primer labeled with FITC at 5’-end and one primer labeled with Biotin at 5’-end. Alternatively the use of one of the labeled primers can be replaced by gene-specific FITC or Biotin labeled probe. Kit includes PCRbeam™ Membrane Strips that are coated with biotin-ligand on the test band and an anti-rabbit antibody on the control band. The bottom part of the strip which is used for sample application contains an anti-FITC antibody attached to gold particles. PCRbeam™ Detection Buffer is Tris-buffered saline enabling the detection.
The PCRbeam™ Fast PCR Detection Kit can be applied for established tests or home-brew assays as a fast and sensitive yes/no detection method. The detection sensitivity is up to 100 fold higher than the one achievable with ethidium bromide stained gels what provides an environment friendly save and economical alternative to the use of mutagen stains.
For establishing sensitive PCR-based tests before PCRbeam™ detection we recommend the use of hot-start PCR enzymes or master mixes, like highQu ALLin™ Hot Start Taq Mastermix or ALLin™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase.
Principle: The membrane strip is soaked for 10 minutes into the vial with the detection buffer mixed with PCR product. The lateral sample flow driven by gold particles moves the solution up the strip. FITC labeled DNA strand binds with the anti-FITC antibody on the gold particle and Biotin labeled DNA strand is caught by Biotin ligand attached to the test band. As both DNA strands remain hybridized at room temperature, the test band builds an aggregate that develops red-blue color. Excess gold particles that were not caught by FITC move up the strip and the anti-FITC antibody binds to the anti-rabbit antibody to develop the red-blue colored control band.
If there is no PCR product in the reaction, then only the control band will be visible. If there is a specific product, the test band will be colored as well.

ALLin™ Red Taq Mastermix
highQu ALLin™ Taq DNA Polymerase is the versatile engineered enzyme which in combination with the optimized ALLin™ buffer provides higher success rates in demanding PCR applications like amplification of complex templates, crude sample PCR and fast cycling. ALLin™ Taq DNA Polymerase has the same PCR accuracy like Taq DNA Polymerase, 4.5 x 10^4 (a number of correct nucleotides incorporated before the error occurs) and produces A-tailed products suitable for ligating into TA cloning vectors. The convenience of ALLin™ Taq DNA Polymerase is maximized by the use of 2X Red Mastermix providing the additional advantage of reduced pipetting and minimized errors. ALLin™ Red Taq Mastermix, 2X is premixed with red dye and density reagents for direct loading on the gels after the PCR. In a 2% agarose TAE gel the dye migrates with~350 bp DNA, in 1% agarose TAE gel with ~ 600 bp DNA fragments. The mastermix is even supplied with the PCR Water, and the only thing to add is the template with primers.

Taq DNA Polymerase
highQu Taq DNA Polymerase is the classical enzyme for routine PCR applications providing high amplification yields of 3-5 kb targets under various conditions. Taq DNA Polymerase is purified from a recombinant E. coli strain carrying the Taq DNA polymerase gene. Taq DNA polymerase is thermostable 5´ → 3´ DNA polymerase. It lacks 3´ → 5´ exonuclease (proofreading) activity and has low 5´ → 3´ exonuclease activity. Polymerase exhibits deoxynucleotidyl transferase activity resulting in A-overhang at the 3'-ends of PCR products and allowing for TA cloning. The PCR accuracy of Taq DNA Polymerase is 4.5 x 104 (a number of incorporated nucleotides before the first error occurs). The supplied reaction buffer for most flexibility in optimization, contains no dNTPs and no magnesium. The 50 mM MgCl2 solution is provided separately what allows for magnesium optimization starting from 1 mM up to 4 mM final concentration upon the need. The dNTPs in sets or mixes can be purchased from highQu separately.

ALLin™ HS Red Taq Mastermix
highQu ALLin™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase is the superior sensitive enzyme. The activity at room temperature is blocked by small molecular inhibitor. Enzyme becomes active only after heating what allows for highly specific and extremely sensitive amplification, no primer dimer formation and no background. In combination with the optimized ALLin™ buffer enzyme provides higher success rates in demanding PCR applications like amplification of crude, complex or longer templates and fast cycling. ALLin™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase has the same PCR accuracy like Taq DNA Polymerase, 4.5 x 10^4 (nucleotides incorporated before the error occurs) and produces A-tailed products suitable for ligating into TA cloning vectors. The convenience of ALLin™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase is maximized by the use of 2X Red colored Mastermix providing the additional advantage of reduced pipetting and minimized errors. The mastermix is even supplied with PCR Water, and the only thing to add is the template with primers. ALLin™ HS Red Taq Mastermix, 2X is premixed with red dye and density reagents for direct loading on the gels after the PCR. In a 2% agarose TAE gel the dye migrates with~350 bp DNA, in 1% agarose TAE gel with ~ 600 bp DNA fragments. ALLin™ HS Red Taq Mastermix, 2X is also a key component in highQu SampleIN™ Direct PCR Kit (DPK0101/5), ensuring outstanding PCR results with crude samples.
