PCR From Whole Blood, Simplified

Bioline, The PCR Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meridian Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIVO), is proud to announce the worldwide release of the MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kit, developed for fast, highly-specific PCR direct from whole blood samples.

Based on the proven MyTaq TM HS DNA polymerase, in combination with a novel, red-colored, buffer system; the new Bioline MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kit overcomes the PCR inhibitors typically present in whole blood samples in a rapid, easy-to-use protocol.

By using the MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kit researchers can expect faster protocols, higher yields and direct gel loading compared to traditional methods that require complex DNA purification steps and final sample processing.

Marco Calzavara, President of Bioline commented, "With MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kit, researchers can now quickly and easily achieve the purity and yield necessary for high-performance PCR direct from mammalian blood samples. This makes MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kit the perfect complement to our widely used PCR reagents.”

Richard L. Eberly, President of Meridian Life Science, Inc., stated, “We are delighted to release the MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kit which simplifies the process of PCR extractions from whole blood samples. We are committed to our life science customers and to bringing innovation and quality products; such as the MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kits to the research laboratory, clinical diagnostic laboratories, and biotechnology companies.”

The MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kit has been validated with whole blood samples from a number of mammalian species types and is particularly suitable for multiplexing, GC rich and longer amplicon applications. Furthermore, the speed, specificity and simplicity of the MyTaq TM Blood-PCR Kit makes it ideal for and high-throughput genotyping assays.
