“GoTaq G2 Master Mix produced higher and more balanced concentrations of amplification products in duplex PCR, with fewer non-specific amplifications that could confuse interpretation of infection status of plants compared to competitor’s Taq DNA polymerase.”

“We were impressed by the potency and will test more reactions. This was kind of a tricky sequence to amplify and yet strong bands. We also reduced time spent to get a result since the color is already in the mix."

“GoTaq G2 was able to produce specific products from the hiTAIL PCR method without any modifications to the cycling parameters not only once, but in a replicate as well. The result was outstanding, robust amplicons above the 500bp threshold were observed without the routinely observed smear or small amplicons of the NEB OneTaq system.”

“For the specific amplicon GoTaq G2 polymerase worked much better compared to standard enzyme."

GoTaq Your Lab Rules and Conditions
  1. Eligibility

    Open to individuals who are at least 18 years old and are customers of Promega or visitors of the Promega website. Participants do not have to buy Promega products or have to pay in order to participate. The GoTaq G2 Campaign is limited to one entry per person. Employees of Promega and members of the immediate families of such employees are not eligible. Employees of authorized Promega distributors are not eligible.

    The GoTaq G2 Campaign is not available in all geographic regions. Please check with your Promega representative or authorized Promega distributor for availability in your area. Void where prohibited by law.

  2. Entry

    Go to https://www.promega.com/c/global/gotaq-g2-challenge-2018/gotaq-g2-challenge-sample-request/ to qualify for a free sample of the GoTaq G2 Hot Start product that best suits your needs. Samples requests must meet certain criteria for request fulfillment. Please allow 1 to 6 weeks for approval and delivery. After receiving the sample, compare GoTaq G2 head-to-head with a similar product from your current supplier, preferable not a Promega GoTaq product. After completing your comparison, return to https://www.promega.com/c/global/gotaq-g2-challenge-2018/gotaq-g2-challenge-data-submission/, answer a brief survey and submit your comparison data (gel images, etc.).

    Please consider that your organization’s internal policy may not allow you to receive incentives or your employer’s permission may be requested before participating in the drawing. Limit one entry per person.

  3. Prizes

    Within one week of each entry deadline (below), Promega will conduct a random drawing from among all eligible entries received prior to the deadline. The winner will be notified by e-mail, phone and/or postal mail at the sole discretion of Promega. In the event a winner cannot receive his/her prize for any reason, the prize shall be awarded to an alternate winner via another random drawing. All entrants remain eligible for the GoTaq G2 Campaign drawings listed below that occur after the date of submission. Entry deadlines may be extended without prior notice.

    The grand prize will be awarded to the winner’s institution or company and not directly to the individual winner.

    Upon accepting a prize, the winner will be posted on https://www.promega.com/c/global/gotaq-g2-challenge-2018/ in the form of First Name, Last Initial, Type of organization, City, State, Country. For example: John D., University, Madison, WI. USA.
