Will be supplied as "HawkZ05 Fast DNA Polymerase, 40 U/μL". Unit of measure is "kU".
Reversible hot start DNA polymerase with high reverse transcriptase activity for one-step RT-PCR, allowing a fast RT-step.
HawkZ05 Fast DNA Polymerase is a blend of Z05 DNA Polymerase and a specific oligonucleotide (aptamer) providing the hot start feature.
  • Be flexible.
    Hawk Z05 Fast DNA Polymerase hot start system enables amplification of both RNA and DNA targets.
  • Experience high performance.
    Achieve reliable amplification of your low-copy RNA targets due to high temperature reverse transcription at +60 to +65°C and improved RNA processivity.
  • Achieve high sensitivity.
    High fluorescence intensity results in lower Cp values and improves results for weakly positive samples.
Apply HawkZ05 Fast DNA Polymerase for:
  • Fast, high temperature cDNA synthesis and subsequent DNA amplification of RNA templates
  • Multiplex PCR and qPCR applications that require high specificity, sensitivity, and yield
  • Incorporation of modified nucleotides for labeling of PCR products
  • Detection formats such as hydrolysis probes, hybridization probes and SYBR Green
  • Fast-cycling diagnostic applications and other routine amplification of low-copy targets
HawkZ05 Fast DNA Polymerase is active at temperatures above +60 to +65°C and inactive below +55°C. This hot start feature eliminates the risk of unspecific primer extension. Z05 Fast DNA Polymerase is a mutant of the thermostable enzyme isolated from the thermophilic eubacterium Thermus species Z05, expressed in E. coli. In many aspects, the enzyme is very similar to Tth DNA Polymerase, however, it exhibits a higher stability under PCR conditions and allows for faster transcription.
