High fidelity and reliable DNA polymerase.
Application Area: PCR, DNA polymerase
"Q5 master mix is a DNA polymerase which is very accurate and much faster than Taq with proofreading ability."
Q5® High-Fidelity DNA Polymerase sets a new standard for both fidelity and robust performance. With the highest fidelity amplification available (~280 times higher than Taq), Q5 DNA Polymerase results in ultra-low error rates. Q5 DNA Polymerase is composed of a novel polymerase that is fused to the processivity-enhancing Sso7d DNA binding domain, improving speed, fidelity and reliability of performance.
