PCR

As an industry-leading and global biotech company, abm offers a wide range of PCR, RT-PCR and qPCR enzyme products suitable for a variety of applications.

  • PCR: Compared to regular Taq, our MegaFi™ Fidelity DNA Polymerase has 13000X better proofreading ability and our BlasTaq™ DNA polymerase is 3X faster.
  • RT: Our OneScript® Reverse Transcriptases set a new benchmark for cDNA synthesis, with OneScript® Hot being the only reverse transcriptase in the world that preserves performance at 50-80˚ C.
  • qPCR: Our polymerases are available as dye-based and probe-based MasterMixes, specially formulated for a variety of applications and premixed to streamline your workflows.
  • Nucleic Acid Staining: Developed to replace toxic Ethidium Bromide, SafeView™ products are a new class of nucleic acid stains for the visualization of double-stranded DNA, single-stranded DNA, and RNA in both agarose and polyacrylamide gels.
  • Specialized Kits: Real-time qPCR detection kits of viral particles for recombinant lentivirus, retrovirus and AAV, as well as PCR-based mycoplasma detection Kit for cell culture applications.
Considering switching to abm but unsure which PCR Enzyme to switch to?
Try our PCR Competitor Cross Reference Tool - simply select the current PCR brand and enzyme or MasterMix you are using and our tool will recommend the equivalent abm product.
"I ordered some RT MasterMix and qPCR MasterMix. Both of them are very good, especially the BrightGreen qPCR Mastermix, which gives a very good signal and smaller cycle number than Sybrgreen. The price is cheaper as well. We will order more PCR reagents from ABM in the future."

Xiaoyun Tang, University of Alberta, BrightGreen 2X qPCR MasterMix-ROX and 5X All-In-One RT MasterMix

"I am very impressed with abm's RT MasterMix. It was very easy to use and the reaction time was very short."

Boram Ham, McGill University, Reverse Transcriptase MasterMix
