Enzymes for Research, Diagnostic and Industrial Use

KOD DNA Polymerase from Thermococcus kodakaraensis, Recombinant

Cat No.
KOD is a high fidelity thermostable DNA polymerase that amplifies target DNA up to 6 kbp with superior accuracy and yield for PCR applications. The enzyme's 3'→5' exonuclease-dependent proofreading activity results in a lower PCR mutation frequency than any other commercially available DNA polymerase. The elongation rate and processivity are 5 times and 10 to 15 times higher, respectively, than for Pfu DNA polymerase, resulting in highly accurate and robust yield, in a short reaction time.
