Empirical Bioscience this week introduced FlashTaq Hot-Start Taq DNA polymerase, a chemically-modified Taq polymerase designed to reduce non-specific amplification in PCR.

The enzyme offers fewer contamination issues and fast activation time, according to the company. Under standard hot start conditions the enzyme can be activated and it recovers both 5'-3' polymerase and 5'-exonuclease activities within two minutes versus the ten minutes of activation time required by many competing enzymes.
