Different-sized amplicons from 3 ng of a DNA plasmid were amplified. The use of Taq DNA polymerase resulted in clean and high yield of products, as analysed after PCR on a 0.8% agarose gel.
A fragment (64 bp) of the human blood-coagulation factor IIa (F2) was amplified from 20 ng, 2 ng, 200 pg and 20 pg of a human genomic DNA extract. The same experiment was performed in parallel using the Taq DNA polymerase mix from another well-established and known supplier. PCR products were subsequently analysed on a 2.5% agarose gel.
