Multiplex PCR Master is specially designed for the set-up of multiplex PCR reactions. It contains an optimized composition of polymerase, nucleotides, MgCl2 and stabilizing components in a specifically developed buffer system allowing the parallel amplification of a multitude of fragments in a single PCR assay.
The master mix contains all reagents (except primer and template) in a 2x concentrated ready-to-use solution.
The kit is recommended for use in routine PCR reactions and highly suitable for multiple target gene amplification in a single tube.
The high specificity and sensitivity of the mix is achieved by a chemically inhibited hot-start polymerase. Its activity is blocked at ambient temperature preventing the extension of nonspecifically annealed primers and primer-dimer formations at low temperatures during PCR setup.

Recommended 50 μl PCR assay:
Prepare a master mix of all components except template to reduce pipetting errors. A reaction volume of 20-50 μl per assay is recommended for most PCR cyclers. Pipet with sterile filter tips and perform the setup in an area separate from DNA preparation or analysis. No-template controls should be included in all amplifications.

1)The optimal annealing temperature (AT) can be calculated for each primer as following:
AT = Tm - 5 °C with Tm = 2 °C x (A+T) + 4 °C x (G+C)
Please note that primers should be designed to show minimal differences in there melting temperatures (Tm).
2)Cycle numbers are recommended as following:

  • animal genomic DNA
    10 - 50 ng: 35 - 50 cycles
    50 - 200 ng: 30 - 45 cycles
  • bacterial genomic DNA
    1 - 5 ng: 35 - 50 cycles
    5 - 50 ng: 30 - 40 cycles
  • plasmid and lambda DNA
    1 - 5 ng: 30 - 40 cycles

3)The elongation time depends on the length of the fragments to be amplified. A time of 1 min/kb is recommended.

For optimal specificity and amplification an individual optimization of the recommended parameters may be necessary for each new template DNA and/or primer pair.
