BioThermAB HotStart Taq DNA polymerase offers all the benefits of BioTherm DNA polymerase plus an antibody-based, built-in hot start. The BioThermAB polymerase mix contains HotStart Taq Monoclonal Antibody, which blocks polymerase activity prior to the onset of thermal cycling. This prevents primer-dimers and other artifacts resulting from low-level synthesis from nonspecifically primed sites. The antibodies are quickly inactivated by the increased temperature of thermal cycling. BioThermAB polymerase requires no prolonged heating or denaturing step as do other hot-start methods, making BioThermAB polymerase more convenient and easy to use.
