There was a thread lately about the use of DMSO/betaine etc to help
optimise a "difficult" PCR.
Two months ago Qiagen started to advertise  (yet another) Taq polymerase
together with a magic "Q-solution",
that seems to work similar to betaine ( see a post by D.Clark RE:Vent and
DMSO). Has anybody already 
compared the two reagents?
