Empirical Bioscience Taq Master Mix Products

Empirical Bioscience has launched its FlashTaq HotStart master mix and rEVAlution qPCR master mix products, the newest additions to its Taq Master Mix line for extended storage and optimized labeling. These new products allow storage and use at room temperature for up to 60 days and for extended refrigerated storage at 4° C (~39° F) for up to 180 days. Since these products don't need to be frozen, users don't have to deal with reduced activity and progressive degradation from repeated freezing and thawing of similar products, the company said. The extended labeling capabilities offer advantages in high-volume automated labs, the company added.
