FSTM Taq DNA polymerase is the latest generation fast DNA polymerase. It possesses high amplification efficiency as does Taq polymerase, and fast elongation ability as does KOD polymerase, can be used in a variety of PCR. The elongation rate of FSTM Taq DNA polymerase is as fast as 5s/kb, which shortens the amplification time at least by half .

FSTM Taq DNA polymerase is the latest generation Taq-based DNA polymerase. It possesses high amplification efficiency as does Taq polymerase, and fast elongation ability as does KOD polymerase, can be used in a variety of PCR. The FSTM PCR Buffer, designed for FSTM Taq DNA polymerase, can be used in fast amplification reaction. The elongation rate of FSTM Taq DNA polymerase is as fast as 5s/kb for simple templates, which shortens the amplification time at least by half .
