BD Biosciences Clontech has released a new DNA amplification product called BD Taq Full DNA Polymerase. The enzyme is a full-length recombinant version of the Thermus aquaticus strain YT1 DNA polymerase. It can amplify DNA from any template and is recommended by the company for any general PCR amplification procedure. The product claims to be highly efficient and sensitive, allowing scientists to use less enzyme and template in each reaction. It is also available with a hot start antibody.
