Polymerase Chain Reaction, PCR, revolutionized biological research in 1983. Since then, the ability and demand to amplify DNA in high throughput ways has become a basis for countless biochemical technologies. With this demand comes the responsibility to maintain accuracy and specificity in all reactions.
CleanAmp® Hot Start PCR is a TriLink patented technology developed under SBIR grants from the NIH. CleanAmp Hot Start PCR products provide a specific, sensitive, and flexible alternative to Hot Start DNA polymerases. TriLink has applied their expertise in modified nucleic acid chemistry to develop chemically modified dNTPs and primers that enable Hot Start PCR using standard Taq DNA polymerase. Simply swap out the standard dNTPs or primers in your PCR assay for the corresponding CleanAmp product to create a Hot Start PCR reaction. CleanAmp products are ideal for applications such as reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR), GC rich PCR, multiplex PCR, digital PCR, fast PCR, end-point PCR and real-time PCR (including real-time RT-PCR and fast real-time PCR). CleanAmp Hot Start PCR products offer:
