Private research company New England Biolabs (NEB) has been a leading manufacturer of innovative reagents and high-quality enzymes for molecular biology for more than 40 years. NEB GmbH, which offers the world’s largest selection of DNA and RNA modifying enzymes, is continuously expanding its product portfolio to include related disciplines such as cellular imaging, epigenetics and next-gen. sequencing. However, first and foremost, NEB has a wide selection of DNA polymerases for various application fields related to this method. For example, NEB was the first to make Taq DNA polymerase commercially available to the research community.

The scientists from NEB are at LABVOLUTION 2017 to exhibit the latest achievements in this field, with OneTaq DNA polymerase - as a highly robust polymerase for standard applications - and with Q5 high-fidelity DNA polymerase, which exhibits outstanding accuracy (more than 100 times more accurate than Taq DNA polymerase). When developing both polymerases, NEB took special care to ensure they are user-friendly, so that both can be easily modified for various targets e.g. with extreme GC/AT proportions.

NEB is also exhibiting the new Luna Universal qPCR products for reliable performance on various samples and target sequences. In this instance, NEB is using the very latest enzyme technology so that finding the right reagent for your experiment is child's play. Since Luna Universal qPCR & RT-qPCR products are available for dye- and probe-based detection methods, they should be compatible with all standard platforms.
