Multiplex PCRMultiplex PCR is a widespread technique for the amplification of multiple targets in a single PCR experiment. Multiplexing can save precious time, reagents and samples and also has the benefit of allowing simultaneous comparison of multiple amplicons.
When multiple primer pairs are used in a single tube, non specific amplification and reduced efficiency can be of concern as the reaction cannot be optimised for a single primer pair and target, but rather for all the primers and targets used. For this reason primer design and the DNA polymerase used can be critical to success.
For multiplex assays we recommend PCRBIO HS Taq DNA Polymerase and PCRBIO Ultra Polymerase. Our antibody-mediated hot start formulation prevents the formation of primer dimers and non specific products leading to high reaction sensitivity and specificity. Furthermore, room temperature setup and the option of a convenient ready mix format increases the speed and ease-of-use for successful multiplex PCR.
PCRBIO HS Taq DNA Polymerase & Mixes
Whether you need a hot start assay for high-throughput, automated reaction setup or the detection of a low copy number template, PCR Biosystems offers you a robust industry-leading enzyme to meet your needs.
PCRBIO Ultra Polymerase & Mixes
Is your template GC-rich? Or low in abundance? Does your sample contain PCR inhibitors? PCRBIO Ultra Polymerase is engineered to tackle these hard to amplify templates.
