PCR Biosystems, a leading PCR reagent developer, has launched a new range of Bst polymerase reagents that offer greater sensitivity, speed, and specificity in all isothermal amplification applications. IsoFast™ Hot Start Bst Polymerase and associated ready mixes use proprietary AptaLock™ hot start technology to minimise non-specific amplification, leading to highly specific and sensitive results in as little as 30 minutes.

“Existing isothermal mixes present a number of challenges for organisations looking for sensitivity, specificity, and speed in DNA detection,” stated Alex Wilson, Co-founder and Business Development Manager, PCR Biosystems. “With our new mixes, labs get greatly improved specificity and sensitivity in their amplification reactions, so they obtain highly reliable results. Our internal studies show that they can be up to 50% faster than competitor mixes on tested targets too, which can make a critical difference for diagnostic and medical labs that need results quickly.”
