Abstract: Residual bacterial DNA in most commercial PCR enzymes poses challenges in analysis of microbial genomes, such as accurate detection of bacterial strains by 16S rRNA gene sequences. Here, we introduce Invitrogen™ Platinum™ Taq DNA Polymerase, DNA-free — a
PCR enzyme with the lowest DNA contamination levels as compared to competing “DNA-free” enzymes. Manufactured using a closed single-use system and stringent quality control, the DNA-free Platinum™ Taq DNA Polymerase offers minimized risk of DNA contamination in the enzyme while retaining the performance specifications associated Platinum™ hot-start technology. The purity of this enzyme offers clean backgrounds in reagents-only (or “negative”) controls of broad-range PCR and improves confidence in microbiome studies.
Summary: Residual bacterial DNA in most commercial PCR enzymes poses challenges in analysis of microbial genomes, such as accurate detection of bacterial strains by 16S rRNA gene sequences. Manufactured using a closed single-use system and stringent quality control, the DNA-free Invitrogen™ Platinum™ Taq DNA Polymerase is the ideal choice for microbiome applications where contaminating DNA can’t be tolerated.References: 1.
