Polymerases & PCR mixes

metabion will assist your experimental needs, with a variety of PCR mixes, polymerases and reagents that fully complement our DNA/RNA product portfolio.

Following the publication of the first paper about DNA polymerase in 1956 by the group of Arthur Kornberg, the use of DNA polymerases in cell-free environment made its way to become a routine technique in molecular biology at light speed.

To the same extent, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) invented by Kary Mullis in 1985 has been a truly brilliant breakthrough that Mullis himself liked to portray as the result of fate, ingenuity, and a fortunate mistake. And just in recognition of his role in the invention, Mullis was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1993, which he shared with his colleague Michael Smith, as well as receiving the Japan Prize in the same year.

PCR has now become indispensable for a variety of applications, spanning from research to diagnostics and drug development. It is only sufficient to say that PCR is the gold standard technology for rapid and reliable detection of the recently discovered COVID-19 coronavirus.
