General description

PuReTaq Ready-To-Go PCR Beads are pre-mixed, predispensed, single-dose reactions optimized for performing standard PCR amplifications. The use of recombinant PuReTaq DNA polymerase and other high-purity reagents ensures reliable and robust performance in both end point and real-time fluorescence-based PCR amplifications, and ensures the lowest possible levels of contaminating prokaryotic and eukaryotic nucleic acids.

The puReTaq Ready-To-Go PCR Beads are pre-formulated to ensure greater reproducibility between reactions, minimize pipetting steps, and reduce the potential for pipetting errors and contamination. The only additional reagents required are water, primers, and template DNA. The beads are provided pre-dispensed into either 0.2 ml or 0.5 ml PCR tubes. The 0.2 ml tubes are also supplied in a 96-well (8 × 12) plate format that allows individual strips of eight tubes to be easily removed. This flexibility allows use of either the entire 96-well plate, strips of eight, or individual 0.2 ml tubes.

Features and Benefits

Pre-formulated and pre-dispensed, freeze-dried PCR reagents mix in a bead format for robust and reproducible performance in standard PCR amplifications.

Save time: simply add template DNA solution and primers, and cycle.
  • More reproducible results: less risk of pipetting errors and contamination.
  • High-quality puReTaq DNA polymerase and high-purity reagents: robust performance and the lowest possible levels of contaminating DNA.
  • Long-term ambient-temperature stable: no freezer space required; less energy consumption for shipping and storage.
  • Verified for real-time PCR.
  • For highly robust and reproducible performance in standard PCR applications.
