Gold ST*R 10X Buffer
Gold ST*R 10X Buffer can be used to amplify STR loci using AmpliTaq Gold DNA polymerase. Gold ST*R Buffer can be substituted for the STR 10X Buffer that is supplied with PowerPlex and GenePrint STR Systems, allowing the use of either AmpliTaq or AmpliTaq Gold DNA polymerase. This buffer includes BSA for a more robust reaction and improved results under nonoptimal conditions. The combination of Gold ST*R 10X Buffer and AmpliTaq Gold DNA polymerase can result in greater sensitivity and reduced amplification artifacts.
