Atlas RedTaq DNA Polymerase


– Suited for a wide range of PCR assays.

– Easy visualization of enzyme addition.

– Visualization of complete reaction mixing.

– Direct loading of samples following amplification.


Atlas RedTaq DNA Polymerase catalyzes 5´ to 3´ synthesis of DNA, but lacks 3´ to 5´exonuclease activity (Fig.1). The enzyme has proven to have high amplification yield, be stable at high temperature. Added inert dye will not have any interference to the reaction. Visual confirmation that the enzyme has been added and that proper component mixing of the reaction has occurred. Samples can be loaded directly onto an agarose gel for electrophoresis with no loading dye addition.
