Make your 10X salts solution and make it at 5X, and don't freeze it,
but filter sterilze and store at room temperature.
200 mM KCl
50 mM Tris-Cl (8.3)
7.5 mM MgCl
We also add 0.05% NP-40 deteregent and 5% Acetamide (10/100 ul of 50%) to
all final reactions. I add MgCl to 2.5 mM when using plasmid targets.
If that fails, reconstitute a new batch of dNTPs
If that fails, purchase some new Taq polymerase (fully licensed for PCR of
Now throw away the silly "PCR Kit".
It is essential that you be able to trouble-shoot the components of the
reaction yourself (at this stage), as later on that skill will be
necessary in your own experiments.
