Non-biased amplification of 5-mC, 5-hmC, g-5-hmC DNA


  • Ideal for robust, non-biased amplification of 5mC, 5hmC, and g5hmC-modified DNA
  • Provided as a convenient 2X PreMix: just add water, primers, and template DNA.
  • Includes a strong fluorescent dye (SYTO 9) for real-time and quantitative PCR applications


QuestTaq qPCR PreMix contains all reagents necessary to perform unbiased quantitative PCR with DNA having 5-methylcytosine (5mC), 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), and glucosyl-5-hydroxymethylcytosine (g5hmC) bases. It features a unique DNA polymerase and optimized buffer system for amplification of DNA having modified/unmodified cytosines. It also includes an intense dsDNA-specific fluorescent dye (SYTO 9) for sensitive/precise DNA detection. QuestTaq qPCR PreMix is ideal for locus-specific 5hmC detection when used in conjunction with the Quest 5-hmC Detection Kit (D5410 & D5411) and the Quest 5-hmC Detection Kit-Lite (D5415 & D5416).
