i-MAX(TM) DNA Polymerase

CAT. 25041 (250 Units)

[We are pleased to offer unpublished higher discounts on large volume purchases.]

i-MAX(TM) PCR System is a versatile and easy-to-use enzyme, with powerful advantages for all PCR applications. i-MAX(TM) PCR System is an optimized mixture of i-Taq(TM) DNA polymerase and a proofreading DNA polymerase which have been shown to significantly increase PCR product yield and enhance amplification of a broader range of targets compared to single enzyme formulations.
The enhanced performance of polymerase mixtures is presumably due to the capacity of one enzyme to complement the inability of a second enzyme to extend a primer through certain obstructions. These potential obstructions include mispaired bases that cause non-proofreading polymerases to stall prematurely and disassociate from the primer-template, basic gaps that cannot be bridged by polymerases lacking terminal transferase activity and template secondary structures such as GC-rich hairpins.

PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is developed by Kary Mullis in mid 1980's and it has made development of modern molecular biology possible through DNA oligo sequence. The commonly used DNA polymerase in PCR method is Taq DNA polymerase. In the beginning, the enzyme used in PCR method was
E. coli DNA polymerase, but the enzyme had to be added at every step of the process due to its thermal instability.
Therefore, DNA polymerase is developed from Thermus aquaticus bacteria which thrives in hot spa. Taq DNA polymerase optimally compose DNA at 72, therefore it could stably amplify a specified oligo sequence without adding enzyme at every cycle due to its thermal stability even at 94.

Ideal for amplification of large DNA fragments
