Taq Master contains all reagents required for PCR (except template and primer) in a premixed 5x concentrated ready-to-use solution.
The master mix is recommended for use in routine PCR reactions. It is optimized for high specificity and guarantees minimal by-product formation. The mix is particularly suitable for plate based PCR and automated pipetting where a detergent free buffer system is required.
The enzyme catalyzes the polymerization of nucleotides into duplex DNA in 5'→3' direction in the presence of magnesium. It also possesses a 5'→3' polymerization-dependent exonuclease replacement activity but lacks a 3'→5' exonuclease activity.

1)The annealing temperature depends on the melting temperature of the primers used.
2)The elongation time depends on the length of the fragments to be amplified. A time of 1 min/kbp 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.
