Lucigen's New PCR Kit to Include TriLink's CleanAmp dNTPs

  • Lucigen will use TriLink BioTechnologies' CleanAmp™ dNTPs in its new PCR kit, Taq98™ Hot Start 2X MasterMix. The kit is expected to reach the market next month under a licensing agreement signed by the companies.

    Introduced to market in April, TriLink’s CleanAmp dNTPs are designed to perform hot start PCR, with the goal of reducing mis-priming, primer dimer formation, and other common missteps. CleanAmp dNTPs reportedly allow improved amplicon yield in endpoint PCR and earlier quantification cycle (Cq) values in fast cycling real-time PCR.

    Lucigen’s Taq98 Hot Start 2X Master Mix is expected to be available for sale in mid-August. The PCR kit is designed for customers seeking to amplify difficult DNA templates, including targets with >70% GC content. “The addition of the Hot Start feature has significantly increased the market for this product," states Jeff Williams, Lucigen’s president. Lucigen portfolio of PCR kits includes EconoTaq® DNA Polymerase and EconoTaq® PLUS 2X Master Mixes.
