To save the fiddling, we produce (at the request of the UK Idaho
ditributor - Bio/Gene) a 2x PCR Master Mix at a fixed Magnesium and a 2x
Master Mix Mg optimisation kit with 1-5mM Mg (or 1-10 if required).
Ready to use with all components including, buffer, Mg, dNTPs, BSA and
licensed Taq in it. Remove 5ul and add primers and template to 10ul
final. We can also do the same but with loading dye and buffer to load
the PCR straight onto a gel. Likewise a mix designed and tested for
LightCycler use plus in the next week or so, RT-PCR LightCycler one tube
mixes. It's not on the web sites below yet so email me it you want more

The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get 
sliced from time to time....
