ExtremeTaq™ HiFi Red Mix

The Universal All-in-One PCR Mix for Everyday PCR.

ExtremeTaq™ HiFi Red Mix is an optimized 2x master-mix comprised of an enhanced Taq DNA Polymerase, optimized reaction buffer, MgCl2, ultra-pure dNTPs, and inert red gel-loading dye. This versatile master-mix is ideally suited to all routine end-point PCR applications and challenging DNA targets such as complex GC-rich DNA and low-copy number samples.

The formulation contains Taq Polymerase, proprietary enhancers, hot-start antibodies, and a proof-reading component for trouble-free PCR reaction assembly and consistent performance. ExtremeTaq HiFi Red Mix delivers a unique balance of PCR sensitivity, high fidelity, and value. The ready-to-use ExtremeTaq™ HiFi Red Mix provides excellent performance with plasmid DNA, cDNA and complex mammalian DNA, and exhibits up to 10x higher fidelity than Taq polymerase. The highly efficient buffer and hot-start blend provide the ideal conditions for high-performance PCR and inactivity at room temperature, thereby eliminating non-specific amplification.

ExtremeTaq™ HiFi Red Mix also contains an inert red gel loading and tracking dye which simplifies downstream gel analysis by allowing samples to be loaded directly in agarose gel wells. The red dye migrates at the rate of 600 bp and 350 bp DNA fragments in 1% and 2% TAE agarose gels, respectively. To enable convenience in most PCR applications and direct-to-gel analysis following amplification, we suggest ExtremeTaq™ HiFi Red Mix. For post-amplification analysis by fluorescence or absorbance without prior DNA purification, a colorless version, ExtremeTaq™ HiFi Mix, is also available.
