How does HotStart PCR help minimize nonspecific amplification events?
HotStart PCR is a technique commonly used to improve the sensitivity and specificity of PCR amplifications. Lack of sensitivity or specificity is most often caused by the amplification of nonspecific priming events, such as primer dimers, that usually occur at the lower temperatures when reactions are set up. Although thermostable DNA-dependent DNA polymerases have optimal activity at higher temperatures, they do also have some activity at lower temperatures when they may amplify these nonspecific priming events. HotStart enzymes are inactive at room temperature, and require heating at nucleic acid melting temperatures in order to be activated. In this way, nonspecific priming events are melted before the enzyme can amplify them. During PCR cycles, the temperature never drops low enough during annealing of gene-specific primers for nonspecific priming events to occur, resulting in amplification exclusively of the target of interest. When using a HotStart DNA polymerase, it is critical that the initial denaturation step in the experiment be of sufficient duration to fully activate the enzyme.

Do you have a protocol for polyacrylamide gel analysis of oligonucleotides?
Yes, please follow the Supplementary Protocol 'Polyacrylamide_gel_analysis_of_oligonucleotides' (PCR03).
FAQ ID -961
Is Q-Solution required for PCR with QIAGEN's PCR kits?

Not necessarily. In a lot of cases, the uniquely formulated PCR Buffer provided in the HotStarTag Plus DNA Polymerase, HotStar HiFidelity Polymerase,  Taq DNA Polymerase, HotStarTaq DNA Polymerase, and QIAGEN Multiplex PCR Kits provides optimal amplification of specific PCR products. The usefulness of Q-Solution needs to be determined empirically for each primer/template setup, by running parallel PCR reactions with and without Q-Solution under the same cycling conditions.

Q-Solution changes the melting behavior of DNA and will often improve a suboptimal PCR caused by templates that have a high degree of secondary structure or high GC-contents.  For more details on the effects of Q-Solution on PCR amplification, please see the Q-Solution sections of the HotStarTaq Plus DNA Polymerase, HotStar HiFidelity Polymerase, Taq DNA Polymerase, HotStarTaq DNA Polymerase,  and the QIAGEN Multiplex PCR Handbooks.

FAQ ID -380
How comparable is CoralLoad gel loading dye contained in various QIAGEN PCR Kits to Sigma Red?

CoralLoad gel tracking dye contained in Taq, HotStarTaq, TopTaq DNA Polymerase and TopTaq Master Mix Kits separates into 2 fragment-size dependent colors (orange and red) when loaded onto an agarose gel. Sigma Red buffer only has one color which is harder to visualize.
