Thermo Fisher Applied Biosystems PowerUp SYBR Green PCR Master Mix
Thermo Fisher has launched the Applied Biosystems PowerUp SYBR Green PCR Master Mix, a pre-formulated, universal, 2X concentration master mix designed to improve the specificity and reproducibility of qPCR workflows. The mix contains proprietary Dual-Lock Taq DNA polymerase, which includes a combination of two hot-start mechanisms used to control Taq activation for increased specificity. The inclusion of UNG and dUTP enzymes also prevents previously amplified PCR products from contaminating subsequent qPCR reactions. The mix be used in either standard or fast cycling mode and is compatible with all qPCR instruments.
