The KOD DNA Polymerase from Millipore EMD is a very fast and highly reliable DNA Polymerase for demanding templates
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: High fidelity DNA polymerase designed for accurate PCR amplification of long strand and GC- rich DNA

"I had problems with a Cloning PCR of an GC-rich template, where I always got mismatches or small deletions in the GC-rich region with our conventional proof reading polymerase. With the KOD I got the correct clone in the first run already. Further I got a stronger PCR- band, respectively more PCR-product with virtually no background than with our conventional polymerase. The KOD DNA Polymerase from Millipore EMD has a very high proofreading function and further runs at an outstanding speed of >1000 bp/ 10sec with a high processivity of 15kbp "

KOD Hot Start DNA Polymerase is a premixed complex of KOD DNA Polymerase and two monoclonal antibodies that inhibit the DNA polymerase and 3´→ 5´ exonuclease activities at ambient temperatures. KOD Hot Start combines the high fidelity, fast extension speed, and outstanding processivity of KOD with the high specificity of an antibody-mediated hot start. Non-specific amplification is reduced because mispriming events that can occur during setup and initial temperature increase are avoided. In addition, primer degradation during setup at room temperature due to exonuclease activity is effectively inhibited. KOD Hot Start Master Mix is a ready-to-use 2x mixture optimized for convenient high-fidelity PCR. KOD Hot Start DNA Polymerase generates blunt-ended PCR products.
