High-Fidelity (HF®) restriction enzymes have the same specificity as native enzymes, but have been engineered for significantly reduced star activity and performance in a single buffer (rCutSmart™ Buffer). All HF-restriction enzymes come with Gel Loading Dye, Purple (6X). Enjoy the enhanced performance and added value of our engineered enzymes at the same price as the native enzyme:
- Engineered for improved performance
- 100% activity in rCutSmart Buffer
- Time-Saver™ qualified for digestion in 5-15 minutes
- Reduced star activity
- Supplied with 1 vial of Gel Loading Dye, Purple (6X)
- Cut Site: C/AATTG
High Fidelity (HF) Restriction Enzymes have 100% activity in rCutSmart Buffer; single-buffer simplicity means more straightforward and streamlined sample processing. HF enzymes also exhibit dramatically reduced star activity. HF enzymes are all Time-Saver qualified and can therefore cut substrate DNA in 5-15 with the flexibility to digest overnight without degradation to DNA. Engineered with performance in mind, HF restriction enzymes are fully active under a broader range of conditions, minimizing off-target products, while offering flexibility in experimental design.
NEB extensively performs quality controls on all standard and high-fidelity (HF) restriction enzymes. Examples of nuclease contamination studies for some of our HF restriction enzymes are shown below.
