Hi-Spec Additive is a compound designed to eliminate unwanted PCR by-products, such as background smears and spurious bands. Hi-Spec Additive is recommended for use with DNA templates that are difficult to amplify.

Features & Benefits

  • High yield - dramatically improves PCR specificity and yield
  • Universal - compatible with commercially available thermostable DNA polymerases
  • Robust - useful for difficult templates
  • Reduces smearing and background - ideal for low copy templates

Applications

  • DNA polymerase reactions where specificity is critical
  • Enhancing the performance and specificity of any thermostable DNA polymerase

Description

Hi-Spec Additive is a compound designed to improve PCR specificity and to eliminate unwanted by-products, during DNA amplification, such as background smears and spurious bands. Hi-Spec Additive is ideally suited for use with difficult templates with GC-rich regions or repetitive sequences. The additive is supplied at a concentration of 5x.
