HiFi DNA Polymerase
HiFi DNA polymerase is ideal for amplification of DNA fragments that require high-fidelity. High fidelity is achieved by an optimal blend of high performance YEAtaq DNA polymerase and Accu DNA polymerase, a Pyrococcus proofreading (3'→5' exonuclease activity ) enzyme. This formulation achieves greater yields with higher fidelity than standard DNA polymerases such as Taq. HiFi is a quality choice for sensitive applications. Because of the presence of Accu DNA polymerase in the blend, dUTP, dITP and primers containing these nucleotides should not be used in PCR because they hinder DNA synthesis. HiFi DNA polymerase is offered in two different packages, one with dNTPs mix and the other without. HiFi DNA Polymerase is also available in 2× ready-to-use premix format with a green dye.

One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme that will incorporate 10 nmol of
dNTPs into acid-insoluble material in 30 minutes at 72 °C.
- Nuclease activity is not detected after incubation of 1 μg λ/Hind III DNA with
5 units of HiFi DNA polymerase in 50 μl reaction buffer for 18 hours at 37 °C.
- The absence of endo-, exodeoxyribonucleases and ribonucleases is confirmed
by appropriate tests. Functional test is performed by PCR.
