NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – TriLink BioTechnologies and Lucigen today announced a deal for the use of TriLink's CleanAmp dNTPs in Lucigen's Taq98 Hot Start 2X MasterMix.
In a statement, the companies said that a Hot Start reaction can be achieved by replacing the standard dNTPs in a PCR assay with CleanAmp dNTP, resulting in a cost-effective method to "vastly reduce mis-priming."
The Taq98 Hot Start 2x MasterMix was created by Lucigen for customers seeking to amplify difficult DNA templates, such as targets with greater than 70 percent GC content, they added.
The product is expected to become available in mid-August.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
