MyTaq™ HS Red DNA Polymerase is a red-colored, high performance PCR reagent that is powered by antibody-mediated hot-start, specifically designed for fast, highly-specific, hot-start PCR. MyTaq HS Red does not exhibit polymerase activity during the reaction set-up, thus reducing non-specific amplification including primer-dimer formation.

Features & Benefits

  • Universal DNA polymerase - recommended for most applications
  • Fast - complete PCR reaction in less than 30 minutes
  • Antibody-based hot-start polymerase - for highest specificity
  • Superior performance - highly optimized buffer system, including ultra-pure dNTPs and MgCl2
  • Red dye - for direct gel loading
  • All-in-one mastermix available- for enhance reproducibility


  • Fast PCR reactions
  • Colony PCR
  • Genotyping
  • Multiplexing
  • Low-copy PCR assays
  • Specific amplification of difficult templates (GC-rich)
  • Assays with prolonged reaction set-up


MyTaq™ HS Red uses the latest technology in PCR enzyme design, engineered to increase affinity for DNA, resulting in significant improvements in yield, sensitivity and speed (fig. 1).

MyTaq HS Red has the added convenience of room temperature reaction assembly, thus avoiding non-specific amplification and primer-dimer formation. With activation times as low as 1 to 2 minutes, a complete PCR assay can be completed in less than 30 minutes. The enzyme is supplied with an industry-leading novel buffer system, consisting of proprietary formulation containing dNTPs, MgCl2 and enhancers at optimal concentrations, this removes the need for optimizing individual reactions and delivers superior amplification time after time (fig. 2).

With an inert red dye, samples can be loaded directly onto the agarose gel without the need for an additional loading buffer, as the mix is of sufficiently high density to sink to the bottom of the well, making MyTaq HS Red DNA Polymerase ideal for high throughput assays.

Customer Testimonials

I like this product because it is easy to use and fast to set up a PCR reaction. Very convenient! I used it for regular PCR and it worked well to amplify my product. It also has a red mix, so after PCR I don't have to add any loading buffer, which is awesome!
