Thermophilic Polymerases are the backbone of any PCR reaction, be it a simple Taq Polymerase for your routine PCR or a modified version for Hot Start set ups or even a High Fidelity Polymerase to amplify almost error-free. Jena Bioscience is offering you a broad selection of enzymes, meeting your demands (see overview).
In this section of PCR C&Cs, you have maximal flexibility in choosing the right enzyme for your PCR experiment in the quantities you need.
You want to have ready to use mixes and kits or shop nucleotides only? Check out the sections Core Kits & Master mixes and Nucleotides.
