Advantage 2 PCR Kit
The Advantage 2 PCR Kit includes our Advantage 2 Polymerase Mix (which comes with two optimized buffers), dNTPs, and PCR controls. Our Advantage 2 Polymerase mix is a proven balance of high yield and high fidelity for cDNA amplification and library construction. With 3X higher fidelity than regular Taq, it can readily amplify a wide range of DNA templates, including long templates up to 18 kb and complex genomic DNA up to 6 kb.
- Unique blend of enzymes provides nearly error-free amplification—almost 3-fold higher fidelity than wild-type Taq
- Exceptionally high yields and sensitivity with almost any target DNA up to 5 kb
- Pre-optimized buffer eliminates the need to troubleshoot reaction conditions
- Integrated hot-start Ab allows room temperature reaction setup and increased specificity
- Available in a lyophilized format as High Fidelity PCR EcoDry Premix, which is convenient for room-temperature shipment and storage
- Long and accurate PCR
- Preparative PCR
- RACE PCR
- cDNA synthesis/amplification
- cDNA subtraction
- Hot-start PCR
