PCR technical notes
Endpoint PCR is a workhorse technique for translational research, and as with any mainstay approach, strength and reliability are key. Single-copy PCR may be used for routine screening for a target of interest, while multiplex PCR assays are designed to detect a suite of targets. For efficiency, fast PCR enables screening in a fraction of the time by using high-speed enzymes, while direct PCR allows amplification from tissue without the need for DNA extraction.
No matter the demands of your PCR amplification assay, we have a polymerase that is precision-tuned to meet your needs.
Featured case study
Long-range PCR with PrimeStar GXL DNA Polymerase was used to amplify the entire BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes for targeted next-gen sequencing.
