Empirical Bioscience's Taq DNA Polymerase Labeling Storage Extension

Empirical Bioscience announced that its Taq DNA Polymerase is now labeled for storage at room temperature (15℃ to 25℃) for up to 30 days and for refrigeration at 4℃ for up to 90 days. Tests show that the product exhibits no detectable loss of function when stored and used under these conditions, the firm said, adding that the new storage and usage conditions also allow for easier and more accessible use in laboratories.
