DNA Polymerase 

Takara Bio PrimeSTAR GXL DNA Polymerase

Takara Bio - PrimeSTAR GXL DNA Polymerase 

Unbiased and efficient library amplification for NGS

The PrimeSTAR GXL DNA Polymerase is a robust high-fidelity polymerase. It is available for challenging targets, e.g. long amplicons, GC-rich sequences, and excess template. It has an antibody-mediated hot-start feature which enhances PCR specificity and sensitivity.

  • Amplification of products up to 30 kb (human genomic DNA), 40 kb (lambda DNA), or 13.5 kb (human cDNA)
  • Antibody-mediated hot-start formulation
  • High tolerance for GC-rich templates as well as the presence of excess nucleic acid templates
