  • FAQ: What are the advantages or disadvantages of Crimson LongAmp™ Taq DNA Polymerase?

    The Crimson LongAmp Taq Reaction Buffer formulation offers three convenient features. First, the 5X Crimson LongAmp Taq Reaction Buffer contains a red dye, which serves as a visual indicator of homogeneous reaction setup. Second, the 5X Crimson LongAmp Taq Reaction buffer facilitates direct loading of PCR products on a gel. Third, the trace amount of red dye in Crimson LongAmp Taq Reaction Buffer works as a tracking dye during electrophoresis. 

    If the PCR products will be analyzed by absorbance or fluorescence excitaiton, acid red, (λmax = 510 nm) may interfere with the assays; Therefore LongAmp Taq Reaction Buffer is recommended.
