Exemplary tetraplex PCR assay
Detection of three specific pathogen targets and an internal control. Total input DNA per reaction was 10^6 (red), 10^5 (yellow), 10^4 (blue), 10^3 (green), 10^2 (purple), 10 (light blue) and 0 copies (grey) and 8000 copies/reaction for the internal control (shown in the CY5 plot).
5x Multiplex – robust PCR perforemance for a wide range of qPCR application
PlexTaq® 5x qPCR Multiplex Master Mix contains all components necessary for rapid, sensitive and reproducible quantification of DNA and cDNA. An engineered DNA polymerase and an optimized buffer including ultrapure dNTPs are key components of the ready to use mix. A hot-start formulation of the included DNA polymerase prevents aptamer prevents false amplification and provides a fast start function.
PlexTaq®´s formulation allows to use it also for direct PCRs from crude samples.
