Step Ahead in Genomics Take the PCR and Transfection Challenge

Our KOD polymerases and transfection reagents are 100 % guaranteed.
KOD Polymerases: Meet the demands of next generation genomic amplification as ultra high fidelity tools for Synthetic Biology, Biofuels, Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), Plant & Animal PCR: • Ultra-high fidelity with speed and yield • Amplification of GC-rich (90 %) DNA • Long-range PCR (40 kb plasmid/phage & 24 kb genomic) • Proven compatibility with deriviatized dNTPs •  Minimal sample processing with ready-to-use protocols for accurate PCR in complex crude lysates • Generate less bias in NGS libraries

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain with our Performance Guarantee.
If you are not completely satisfied, for any reason, with the performance of EMD Millipore KOD Polymerases or transfection reagents, contact a Technical Support Specialist for assistance or full credit against future purchases.

Figure 1.

A) KOD Polymerases (blue) yield more DNA in fewer PCR cycles than other high fidelity polymerases (other colors). B)  Efficient amplification of a 6.98 kb GC-rich gene from human genomic DNA. This gene (53% GC-rich overall) contains extremely GC-rich blocks: 150 bp (84% GC) and 529 bp (76% GC). C)  KOD polymerase limits GC library bias during Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) library preparation as compared to other commercially available products. Preparation performed using EMD Millipore’s PureGenome™ High Efficiency NGS Library Reagents. Visit for additional details.
