Maximo H-SPlus-Taq DNA Polymerase

Hot Start Polymerase with ultra short inactivation time, free of MAB´s. The glycerol-free version is designed for Lyophilization, especially


Maximo H-SPlus Taq DNA Polymerase (recombinant from Thermus aquaticus) catalyzes the polymerization of nucleotides into duplex DNA in 5’→3′ direction in the presence of magnesium. It also possesses a 5’→3′ polymerization-dependent exonuclease replacement activity but lacks a 3’→5′ exonuclease activity. The activation of the enzyme starts immediately at 70°C and requires no increased time in heating or denaturation step. Its activity is blocked at ambient temperature and switched on automatically at the onset of the initial denaturation. The thermal activation prevents theextension of nonspecifically annealed primers and primer-dimer formation at low temperatures during PCR setup.

– Maximo H-SPlus Taq DNA Polymerase is “inactive” at room-temperature
– When the reaction temperature is greater than 70 °C the Polymerase “jumps” into action
– It is neither blocked by antibodies nor by chemically modification -> ultra-short activation time
– For “high-yield” Hot-Start PCR results
– Multiplex PCR
– PCR setting up at room-temperature
– As sensitive Polymerase for PCR Diagnostics research
– ready-to use for lyopholization when using the HC-Versions
