Product Watch: Amresco Lyophilized PCR Master Mix

Premium

Amresco this week introduced a lyophilized PCR master mix.

The Lyophilized Ready PCR Mix 2X is based on the company's Ready PCR Mix 2X to enhance the stability of latter's EZ-Vision DNA dye, and offers greater stability and more convenient storage, the company said.

The magenta-colored EZ-Vision tracking dye allows an aliquot of the PCR reaction to be directly loaded and separated on an agarose gel following amplification. After electrophoresis, PCR products are immediately visualized using standard UV illumination.

Besides the EZ-Vision dye, the master mix contains the high-fidelity Extender DNA Polymerase Blend, reaction buffer, dNTPs, and electrophoresis tracking dye.
