Meridian Bioscience High-Specificity Pfu HS Mix

Meridian Bioscience launched a High-Specificity Pfu Hs Mix to provide high-fidelity amplification for companion diagnostic and clinical testing. The solution cuts down on the possibility of uneven amplification of diverse types of sequences. Meridian said the mix has "market-leading" properties in terms of inhibitor resistance, multiplexing, and low GC bias and can be used in next-generation sequencing and PCR applications.
