See what our customers are saying about our fast DNA polymerases!
I used PrimeSTAR MAX polymerase for mutagenesis PCR. For all the sample, mutations were correctly introduced. It took only two days to obtain mutant clones."
—Fumiaki Ito, UNIV OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
It worked with a fast protocol I have used for a new design of a thermal cycler. My goal is to make PCR as fast as possible to cut down the overall time of a reactions. I wonder if the SpeedSTAR will work well with real-time reaction in the presence of dyes."
—Season Wong, AI BIOSCIENCES INC
I was very satisfied with the SapphireAmp! Colony pcr's that normally take over 3 hours were done in 1 hour! I've already purchased more of this product."
