Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)

High-Specificity Pfu HS Mix

A high-fidelity DNA polymerase with aptamer-based hot-start technology highly suited to target enrichment, NGS library amplification, and cloning applications. High-Specificity Pfu HS Mix provides high yield and sensitivity, as well as superior amplification of GC- and AT-rich targets. The hot-start aptamer binds reversibly to the polymerase which inhibits its activity at ambient temperatures and improves the specificity of the amplification. Product Highlights • Aptamer hot-start for increased specificity • Inhibitor-tolerant (tolerates up to 20%whole blood) PRODUCT CAT NO. VOLUME REACTIONS MDX006 5 mL

High-Specificity Pfu HS Mix

• Robust amplification across different GC-content (29% - 65%) • High-fidelity reduces errors for NGS library amplification • Convenient room temperature reaction set-up • Suitable for multiplexing

Low GC Bias at Both High (over 65%) and Low (under 25%) GC Content GC bias plot from whole-genome 2.0

sequencing of a mixture of S. aureus and R. spheroides genomic DNA using High-Specificity Pfu HS Polymerase and supplier K. Libraries were prepared from 100 ng (amplified libraries) or 1 μg (PCR-free library) of genomic DNA from S. aureus and R. spheroides , mixed equimolarly. Library amplification consisted of 10 PCR cycles using High-Specificity Pfu HS Mix (MDX006) or supplier K mix, following the manufacturer’s recommendations. GC bias plots were generated, with %GC content of 100 bp windows on the X axis. Normalized coverage is indicated for the High-Specificity Pfu HS Mix (blue line) and supplier K (green line) and can be compared to a PCR-free reference library (black line), which has the horizontal bias distribution closer to 1 (representing unbiased coverage). The results illustrate High-Specificity Pfu HS Polymerase has a lower bias across the entire range of GC content, compared to the PCR-amplified library from supplier K, especially for GC percentages higher than 65%.
