Rapidly Activated Hot-Start Taq DNA Polymerase - Cheetah™ Taq

Rapidly Activated Hot-Start Taq DNA Polymerase - Cheetah™ Taq

Cambridge Bioscience offers a chemically modified hot-start Taq DNA polymerase to minimise non-specific DNA amplification in PCR. With a faster activation time, better shelf-life and an alkaline activation condition optimal for both Taq activity and specific amplification, Cheetah™ Taq represents a major improvement over AmpliTaq Gold® and other similar chemically-modified hot-start enzymes.

Benefits of Using Cheetah™ Taq
• Fast activation - <2 minute activation
• Excellent activity recovery
• Improved stability during storage
• pH compatibility for optimal Taq activity
• Specific target amplification

Comparison of Relative Activity Between Cheetah™ Taq and AmpliTaq® Gold
Relative activity of Cheetah™ Taq and AmpliTaq® Gold following different incubation times. All incubations took place with 50 nM of the enzyme in 50 mM pH 8.0 Tris at 94 °C

Featuring EvaGreen® dye for qPCR and the fast-activating Cheetah hot-start Taq, both master mixes and PCR kits are available. Please see our range below.
