DNA-Free Hot MolTaq 16S/18S: Low Load Microbial DNA Detection

09 April 2018  

63066900 s PCR Platte quadrThe PCR-based analysis of low load bacterial and fungal DNA demands a Taq DNA polymerase that is highly active over extended cycle numbers, and at the same time free of contaminating microbial DNA.
In this application note, Linow [1] provides an overview of the specifications of Molzym’s newly developed Hot MolTaq 16S/18S. Discussed characters cover the amplification activity over 40 cycles against different target amounts, suppression of non-specific amplifications and the absence of microbial contaminations in negative controls.


Further, a comparative study of Molzym’s Hot MolTaq 16S/18S with other hot start Taq DNA polymerases declared as low contaminated is shown.
