Unrivaled enzyme technologies
The majority of our products originate from organisms living in the cold Arctic ocean off the coast of Northern Norway. The preconditions for survival in these waters are “life systems” supporting life at very low temperatures. Our products take advantage of such evolutionary adaptations with enzymes displaying high specific activity at low temperatures. Commonly – but not always – associated with a higher degree of heat-lability than usual for similar enzymes.
The combination of low temperature activity and the unique heat-inactivation possibility integrates extremely well with current molecular biology protocols and offers substantial quality – and work-process advantages.
It is the underlying novel technologies that make our premium enzymes so special. Find out more about them and how they can help you to unlock new possibilities in your work – be it as a molecular kit manufacturer, diagnostic assay developer or therapeutic company.
SAN High Quality
SAN High Quality 2.0
M-SAN High Quality
M-SAN offers the optimal solution for removal of nucleic acids at the near-physiological conditions used in many bioprocessing and biomanufacturing workflows.
This non-specific endonuclease is particularly useful for protein purification and the removal of DNA and RNA from molecular biology reagents.
IsoPol® DNA Polymerase
This heat-tolerant Bst polymerase (large fragment) has an enhanced strand-displacement activity and is active from 25 to 65°C.
The enzyme from Atlantic cod is the only commercially available UNG enzyme that is completely and irreversibly inactivated by moderate heat treatment.
AZscript™ Reverse Transcriptase
High-quality reverse transcriptase, originating form Moloney Murine Leukemia Virus (M-MLV), engineered for increased thermostability and reduced RNase H activity.
The heat-labile double-stranded endonucleases digest neither ssDNA nor RNA and can be used for the specific removal of dsDNA in the presence of other nucleic acids.
Shrimp alkaline phosphatase, which is still the gold standard, can be fully inactivated by a short heat treatment.
HL-ExoI is active at temperatures ≥25°C, and inactivated by 1 min incubation at 80°C, or 15 min at 60°C.
The unspecific endopeptidase originates from an Arctic marine microbial source. It has broad substrate specificity and is easy to inactivate after use.
T4 DNA Ligase
T4 DNA Ligase catalyses the formation of a phosphodiester bond between 3’-hydroxyl and 5’-phosphate termini in duplex DNA, duplex RNA and DNA/RNA hybrids.
ArcticZymes R2D Ligase™
ArcticZymes R2D Ligase is a unique ATP dependent double-strand DNA ligase able to join RNA to DNA.
