DNA Amplification

Fast PCR

The speed of a PCR can depend on a number of factors, including the extension rate of the polymerase used, the ramp speed of the thermocycler and the complexity of the DNA template. Compared to standard extension rates of Taq DNA Polymerase (~1kb/min), enzymes that are able to perform fast PCR have extension rates that are typically 2-4kb/min.
