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

Liquid handling

Hamilton Microlab Prep

Hamilton - Microlab Prep

Automation, So You Can Focus on Innovation

Get ready to revolutionize the work in your lab by replacing manual pipetting with the efficiency and accuracy of the Microlab Prep. The Microlab Prep packs Hamilton’s signature quality and efficiency into a mini liquid handler workstation that easily fits on a lab bench or in many biological safety cabinets. Features same high speed, high-quality pipetting technology that you find on any larger Hamilton liquid handlers, including active pipetting monitoring. 

When to use automation:

  • Many samples in use
  • Full plates or tube racks
  • Ergonomic issues are a concern
  • A need to increase reproducibility while decreasing errors
