Product information "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.

2X 1Step RT qPCR Probe Kit
Our improved 2X 1Step RT qPCR Probe Kits provide highly sensitive target RNA detection when working with a wide variety of samples. The optimized 1Step RT qPCR Pro Mix in combination with a blend of thermostable Reverse Transcriptase and an advanced RNase Inhibitor (RT-Pro Mix) allows for a single step, one tube RT qPCR with great results even in multiplex reactions. The novel RT-Pro Mix ensures safe and efficient RNA template conversion into a single-stranded cDNA. Pure RNA samples, as well as lysed crude samples can serve as templates for one-step RT qPCR. Though the kit was not specifically designed for crude sample qPCR, it has a potential to work well for this application. The robust 1Step RT qPCR Pro Mix is a 2X concentrated qPCR master mix which includes dNTPs, buffer, and the hot start Taq DNA Polymerase. The Hot Start function ensures the highest sensitivity and specificity under both standard and fast qPCR cycling conditions. The kits provide excellent results on both AT and GC-rich templates and show early Ct values with minimum or no optimization. Our kits include PCR Water to guaranty the best performance. To suit the broad instrument range the 2X 1Step RT qPCR Probe Kits are available in three versions – without ROX, with low or high ROX concentration.

SecurRIN™ Advanced RNase Inhibitor
SecurRIN™ Advanced RNase Inhibitor is a premium tool for RNA protection from degradation during enzymatic reactions, storage or extraction. It is an extraordinary stable and robust enzyme: it works at up to 60°C temperature, remains active after weeks of room temperature exposure and multiple freezing thawing cycles. It is active in different buffer conditions within a broad pH range of 5.5 to 9.0, and within 0.5 - 1 mM concentration of DTT. SecurRIN™ Advanced RNase Inhibitor is a 50 kDa non-covalent inhibitor of RNase A, RNase B, and RNase C binding them in a 1 to 1 ratio. It is a recombinant protein derived from E. coli strain carrying human placenta RNase Inhibitor gene. SecurRIN™ Advanced RNase Inhibitor does not inhibit RNAses H, 1, T1, T2 and S1 Nuclease. It influences neither the activity nor the performance of DNA polymerases and of Reverse Transcriptases. The enzyme is free from DNAses and RNAses.
