Maximo m-Superhot Taq DNA Polymerase

Superior Taq Polymerase for Real Time PCR and Hot-Start PCR, low-copy number PCR, PCR of difficult templates, Hot-Start activity (only 5 min initial denaturation). The enzyme is developed to enhance the specificity, sensitivity and yield of DNA amplification. The enzyme provides a convenient setting up at room temperature


Maximo M-Superhot Taq DNA for qPCR and Hot-Start-PCR is an optimized mixture of a high processive Taq DNA Polymerase and special inhibitors to Taq DNA for real time PCR. The enzyme is a thermostable DNA polymerase that possesses a 5´→3´ polymerase activity and a double-stranded specific 5´→3´ exonuclease activity. The enzyme consists of a single polypeptide with a molecular weight of 94kDa. It is developed for real time PCR or as basis enzyme for  real time PCR diagnostics systems.

Maximo M-Superhot Taq DNA Polymerase for qPCR is designed for Real-Time PCR and Hot-start PCR. A special inhibitor suppresses the reaction at room temperature until after the first denaturation step. This prevents primer-dimers and other artefacts. Using the enzyme there is no need to adjust the existing standard PCR protocol.

– Hot Start and real time PCR
– Multiplex PCR
– Amplification of complex genomic and cDNA templates
– no primer-dimers and other artêfacts; inactive at room temperature
– short activation time for real time PCR
– enhanced PCR sensitivity
