NxGen® Grade Phi29 DNA Polymerases

NxGen® Grade Phi29 DNA Polymerases

Cambridge Bioscience offers the genomic-grade phi29 DNA polymerase in a highly pure form (99% purity) specifically for next-gen applications. phi29 DNA polymerase is a highly processive DNA polymerase with a powerful strand displacement activity and a 3′→ 5′ proofreading exonuclease function, ensuring quality data and high reproducibility. The enzyme is capable of up to 70,000 insertions per binding event.

Features of the NxGen® phi29 DNA polymerase
