Direct PCR products
Direct PCR allows for amplification directly from tissues or crude extracts, including from plants and animals, without the need for DNA purification. Omitting the multi-step process for preparing genomic DNA helps prevent sample loss, saves time, and reduces costs. Take advantage of polymerases that are robust enough to overcome PCR inhibitors.
Direct PCR vastly simplifies genotyping experiments, especially when the source material is limited, and is well-suited for high-throughput applications.
Note: Terra products are branded as MightyAmp outside the US & Canada.
Terra PCR Direct polymerase demonstrates an exceptional ability to provide consistently strong amplification of a target gene directly from raw or processed meat.

"The Terra PCR kit worked great and saved me an overnight digestion and subsequent DNA purification step. Thanks for letting me try it."
—Matthew Yousefzadeh, UT MD ANDERSON CANCER CENTER
"It worked well, I just followed the protocol and used my gene specific primers and PCR worked great. Definitely saves time on genotyping!"
—Subu Ramamachandran, UNIV OF CALIF BERKELEY
" I use Terra because it's one of the most robust polymerase kit I ever tested. I work a lot with crude DNA extracts and environmental samples (plants, soil, fungi, etc...) and where most of the kits fail, Terra works!"
—Mathieu Tremblay, AGRICULTURE & AGRIFOOD
