AccuStart Genotyping ToughMix is a 2X concentrated ready-to-use reaction cocktail for PCR amplification of DNA templates that overcomes inhibitors often present in crude samples extracted from environmental specimens, plant tissues, or animal tissues. AccuStart Genotyping ToughMix contains all required reaction components, except primers, probes, and DNA template. The light blue color of the AccuVue™ tracer dye simplifies reaction assembly in white, or clear, plates and helps to minimize pipetting or mixing errors.
The mix’s proprietary polymerase mix is highly resistant to PCR inhibitors and provides an extremely stringent automatic hot-start allowing reaction assembly, and temporary storage, at room temperature prior to PCR amplification. AccuStart Genotyping ToughMix is compatible with both fast and conventional PCR cycling protocols.

2X reaction buffer containing optimised concentrations of MgCl2, dNTPs (dATP, dCTP, dGTP, dTTP), hot-start DNA polymerase, AccuVue blue qPCR dye, and stabilizers.
Shipping & Storage
AccuStart Genotyping ToughMix is stable for 2 years when stored in a constant temperature freezer at –20°C.
For convenience, it may be stored unfrozen at 2 to 8°C for up to 6 months.
After thawing, mix thoroughly before using. Repeated freezing and thawing does not affect PCR performance.
