FIREPol® is a highly processive, thermostable DNA Polymerase. Due to its genetic modifications, it has enhanced stability at room temperature with no activity loss for up to 1 month.
Possesses 5′→3′ polymerase and 5′→3′ exonuclease activity, as well as a non-template-dependent terminal transferase activity, but lacks a 3′→5′ exonuclease (proofreading) activity making the generated product suitable for TA-cloning.
The fidelity of FIREPol® is similar to a regular Taq DNA Polymerase (error rate per nucleotide ca 2.5 x10-5)
