Extended collaboration between PrimerDesign and ArcticZymes

PrimerDesign and ArcticZymes AS 22 September 2011 announced an extension of the collaboration published June 2011.

ArcticZymes AS will in the future supply their unique Cod UNG to PrimerDesign who will use Cod UNG to enhance the sensitivity and specificity of their Precision Mastermix product range.

CodUNG is the only UNG enzyme that is fully inactivated by heat allowing the use of carry-over contamination control mechanisms in samples used for post-PCR processes like sequencing, fragment analysis and cloning.

Cod UNG is also the only UNG enzyme with a temperature optimum that allows use of enzymatic carry-over contamination control without interfering with reverse transcription reactions.
