TaqNova DNA-free Polymerase is a 94 kDa recombinant, thermostable Taq DNA polymerase isolated from Thermus aquaticus. It is recommended for a wide range of applications which require DNA synthesis at extremely high temperatures. The TaqNova DNA-free Polymerase is a universal and easy-to-use DNA polymerase which works rapidly and effectively in various PCR condition. The enzyme catalyzes DNA synthesis in a 5’→ 3’ direction, shows no 3’→ 5’ exonuclease activity, but has a 5’→ 3’ exonuclease activity. TaqNova DNA-free Polymerase is highly purified from DNA contaminants, enabling amplification of very conserved sequences (e.g. bacterial 16S rRNA region) without risk of false positive PCR results.
