Fast – single-tube protocol that eliminates wash steps, giving high-yield, PCR-ready DNA in just 15 minutes
Simple – few protocol steps greatly reduce the risk of sample loss and contamination and minimizes manual effort
Sensitive – incorporates MyTaq HS DNA Polymerase that exhibits increased affinity for DNA, thereby improving yield of even the most challenging targets
Specific – MyTaq HS DNA Polymerase is an antibody-mediated hot-start enzyme that remains completely inactive during PCR set-up to prevent non-specific amplification
Flexible – ideal for amplifying any target up to 5 kb from DNA extracted from mammalian tissue samples
Convenient – mastermix facilitates PCR set-up and includes a red dye for improved pipetting ease / accuracy and to enable direct gel loading
Many DNA extraction methods can be laborious and time consuming or involve the use of hazardous chemicals. MyTaq™ Extract-PCR Kit offers a rapid, easy and safer alternative for the extraction and amplification of DNA from a variety of tissue types. MyTaq Extract-PCR Kit is particularly suited to solid tissues such as mouse tail or mouse ear. The DNA extractions are performed in a single-tube, without the need for multiple washing steps, greatly reducing the risk of sample loss and contamination.
The extracted DNA is amplified in a proprietary buffer system using MyTaq HS Red Mix, the latest generation of very high-performance polymerase unique to Meridian. To further reduce non-specific amplification, MyTaq HS uses antibody hot-start technology. The advanced formulation of MyTaq HS Red Mix allows fast cycling conditions to be used, greatly reducing the reaction time without compromising PCR specificity or yield.
The rapid MyTaq Extract-PCR Kit maximizes sensitivity while minimizing contamination risks to deliver improved success rates in applications such as mouse DNA characterization. The single tube lysis protocol and MyTaq HS Red Mix maximize sensitivity, while minimizing contamination risks and significantly reduce reaction times as well as delivering improved success rates in protocols such as mouse DNA characterization
