OverviewNovaTaq™ DNA Polymerase* is a premium quality, recombinant form of Thermus aquaticus DNA polymerase that is licensed for PCR. This thermostable enzyme is suitable for a wide range of PCR applications. To ensure the highest purity and reproducible perfomance, each preparation is extensively tested in a variety of quality control assays. NovaTaq DNA Polymerase has an integral 5′→3′ exonuclease and lacks 3′→5′ exonuclease activity. The enzyme generates PCR products with 3′-dA overhangs, suitable for cloning with Novagen Perfectly Blunt®, AccepTor™, and LIC Vector Kits. Each item also includes optimized 10X NovaTaq Buffer with 15 mM MgCl2 for routine amplification conditions, plus separate vials of 10X NovaTaq Buffer without MgCl2, and 25 mM MgCl2 to enable convenient optimization of Mg2+ concentration.
