ZymoTaq qPCR Premix
E2054 / E2055
ZymoTaq qPCR Premix
- Hot-start polymerase for easy setup at room temperature.
- Robust amplification of DNA for genotyping, SNP, and HRM analysis.
- Strong fluorescent signal for real-time and quantitative PCR assays.
ZymoTaq qPCR PreMix contains all the reagents needed to perform quantitative PCR and other molecular downstream analysis such as high-resolution melt (HRM) analysis of DNA methylation and other general real-time PCR assays. This premix features a hot-start DNA polymerase and buffer system optimized for the amplification of bisulfite-treated DNA. It also includes an intense dsDNA-specific fluorescent dye, SYTO 9, for sensitive real-time DNA quantification. This technology can also be found in the Femto Quantification Kits (E2005, E2006, E2007) for low copy detection of DNA from human, bacteria, or fungi.

Q1: What is the error rate of the ZymoTaq DNA polymerase?
The error rate for ZymoTaq DNA polymerase ranges from 1.1x10-4 to 8.9x10-5.
Q2: Which is the maximal amplicon size generated using the ZymoTaq DNA polymerase?
The ZymoTaq DNA polymerase can amplify up to 5 kb.
Q3: What is the benefit of the ZymoTaq DNA PCR systems?
The ZymoTaq DNA PCR system utilizes a hot-start polymerase and is optimized for bisulfite PCR and other GC rich templates, as well as low-copy number of DNA templates. It can also be used for general molecular biology applications as well (e.g. suitable for TA cloning, multiplex PCR, etc).
Q4: Does ZymoTaq DNA polymerase have a 5’ to 3’ exonuclease activity?
The ZymoTaq PreMix was specifically used to amplify bisulfite-treated DNA with no reports of inefficient or nonspecific amplification in a study of dynamic DNA methylation expression levels during different development stages. Results showed that timing of variations in methylation patterns were specific for genes related to growth.Fang X, et. al.
