« Here at Rossdales we switched to using Primerdesign’s PrecisionFAST master mix a couple of years ago. Whilst trailing it alongside the master mix we used at the time we found it had equivalent performance, was very user-friendly as it didn’t form air bubbles in the tube whilst mixing, and was at a better price point. »

« I have never done PCR but needed this done urgently for a paper. Primerdesign was just fantastic in helping me through everything from providing the necessary kits but most importantly all the technical help to guide me through it. »

PrecisionPLUS® qPCR Master Mix

High quality, robust master mix at an exceptionally low cost,  our unique formulation offers a bigger signal to noise ratio, brighter, steeper and precise amplification plots.  The core components are a hot-start Taq polymerase enzyme with a magnesium chloride-based buffer. Stablilisers and preservatives ensure that multiple freeze-thaw cycles do not affect performance.  Our PrecisionPLUS master mixes contain high fidelity enzymes which will provide accurate quantitive measurements for qPCR.

Product features

  • Huge cost saving
  • Precise reproducible results
  • High-efficiency enzyme – superior quality data
  • Supreme stabiliser and preservative robustness
  • Available for all qPCR machines – CLICK HERE to find out which master mix you need for your qPCR instrument
  • SYBR Green dye can be added free of charge 
  • Inert blue dye can be added free of charge

PrecisionFAST® qPCR Master Mix

This range of master mix is ultra-fast and cost-efficient mix allowing you to benefit greatly to one of the best products on the market. If you are looking for fast results, check out our PrecisionFAST range which provides an ultra-fast enzyme for qPCR data in as little as 40 minutes!  This range provides rapid cycling protocols to shorten run time so it’s great if you are running on a tight schedule or need the results quickly.  The Taq polymerase used in our PrecisionFAST master mixes presents an alternative binding site with a higher affinity for DNA and therefore faster processivity.  The buffer within this range is designed for optimum sensitivity which will also allow you to reduce any chances of getting those dreaded primer dimers which are a common occurrence within fast processing enzymes.  

Product Features

  • Ultra-fast enzyme
  • qPCR data in 40 minutes
  • Superior buffer allowing optimum sensitivity
  • Minimises primer dimer formation
  • Available for all qPCR machines – CLICK HERE to find out which Master Mix you need for your qPCR machine
  • SYBR Green dye can be added free of charge
  • Inert blue dye can be added free of charge

PrecisionPLUS® OneStep RT-qPCR Master Mix

Our PrecisionPLUS OneStep master mix is a convenient, one-step, closed tube reaction which means reduced set up/handling time as well as reduced risk of contamination. Our optimised rapid protocol includes a 10 minute RT step. Our PrecisionPLUS OneStep master mix is recommended for RNA pathogen detection, all that is required is to add primers and template for a perfect real-time PCR reaction.

This kit contains a higher fidelity Taq enzyme which further reduces the possibility of primer dimer formation. In addition, we have switched from a chemical hot-start Taq to an antibody modification in PrecisionPLUS OneStep enabling the reduction of the enzyme activation time resulting in shorter run times. As a consequence, you will see the same or better data, in a shorter time frame, so this master mix range is great if you need high-quality data quickly.

Product Features

  • Simple one-step process
  • Reduces the risk of contamination
  • Ideal for RNA pathogen detection
  • Rapid Protocol – includes 10 minute RT step
  • SYBR Green dye can be added free of charge
  • Inert blue dye can be added free of charge
  • Available for all qPCR machines – CLICK HERE to find out which Master Mix you need for your qPCR machine
