Mg2+ HotBead® Introduction
Hotstart PCR using Mg2+ HotBeads® can provide dramatic improvement to your PCR reactions by preventing non-specific products.
Mg2+ HotBeads® work by with holding the Mg2+ required for Taq activity. Mg2+ is released when the template is denatured during the first denature cycle. For difficult templates, hotstart PCR can often make the difference between observing product or no product.
Mg2+ HotBeads® are a convenient, inexpensive and simple alternative to other Hot Start methods.
