I currently use the KASP genotyping system. Can I directly substitute PACE Genotyping Master Mix and IDT primers?

Yes! You can use the PACE™ Genotyping Master Mix (3CR Bioscience) and IDT primers with the same cycling conditions used with KASP™ assays (LGC Biosearch Technologies).

You would likely, however, obtain better quality results by using an alternative touchdown phase of 10 cycles of denaturation at 94°C for 20 seconds, and annealing/extension at 65°C–57°C for 60 seconds, dropping 0.8°C per cycle.
