TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix delivers accurate quantification and dependability in less time on an array of qPCR instrument platforms. It provides best in class performance, including the widest quantifiable range, in both single and duplex reactions, even with challenging targets. TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix contains AmpliTaq Fast DNA Polymerase, uracil-N-glycosylase (UNG), dNTPs with dUTP, ROX dye (passive reference), and optimized buffer components. It is supplied at a 2X concentration.

Features of the TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix include:
Best-in-class performance—superior sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range, and specificity compared to standard mixes in standard mode
Engineered for enhanced benchtop stability—stable at room temperature for up to 72 hours in preassembled reactions
Optimized for multiplexing—validated for duplexing with exogenous and endogenous internal positive control assays
Reduced run times (<40 minutes) on fast and standard instrumentation—optimized for fast mode on fast instruments and fast cycling conditions on standard instruments
Seamlessly transitions into your experiments—validated with TaqMan assays for gene expression and microRNAs, and TaqMan array micro-fluidic cards

Best-in-class performance
TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been designed to provide performance equal to or better than standard master mixes. It has been benchmarked against the leading suppliers' standard and fast master mixes to help ensure that it succeeds in providing best-in-class sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range, and specificity. TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix’s dynamic range (up to 7 logs) is the widest in the industry. The impressive sensitivity of the mix is showcased in the figure below which compares the Ct values of TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix and TaqMan Universal PCR Master Mix across a panel of gene expression assays.

Benchtop stability for high-throughput handling and convenience
TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been engineered to retain a high level of performance in preassembled reactions for up to 72 hours. The stability of this mix provides users of high-throughput liquid handling systems the assurance that the results on the first plate will mimic those of the last plate. The figure below shows an assay that was run upon assembly (time 0) and after 72 hours of incubation at 30°C, simulating the most extreme room temperature scenario.

For those with less extreme throughput needs, the enhanced stability of this master mix provides an overall added convenience to your workflow, as you are no longer constrained to immediately running plates upon assembly.

Optimized for multiplexing
We realize that confidence is paramount when it comes to your results. For added confidence in the results in every well, TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been designed to help deliver accurate results for duplex reactions using an internal positive control (IPC). The figure below shows results for the experimental target β-actin (gene name: ACTB), which was serially diluted and amplified in single-target reactions and duplex reactions.

Validated for microRNA assays
TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been validated for use with multiple real-time PCR applications, including microRNA assays. The formulation provides high specificity and dynamic range, the two most critical performance attributes that define successful results when working with microRNAs. The data in the figure below demonstrate excellent PCR linearity over a 6-log range of input template.

Reduced run times on standard instrumentation
TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been optimized for use with both fast and standard instrumentation, enabling researchers who currently own standard instruments to also reap the performance benefits and time savings this mix provides. The figure below showcases the impressive results achieved when using TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix under fast thermal cycling conditions on the Applied Biosystems 7300 Real-Time PCR System. The mix has been tested with all Applied Biosystems standard real-time PCR instrumentation (7900HT, 7500, and 7300 systems) to enable success independent of whether or not you own a fast-enabled instrument.
