Explore the available commercial enzymes for genomics, diagnostics, and mRNA manufacturing applications.

Reverse transcription at 70 °C

Codex® HiTemp Reverse Transcriptase is a highly sensitive enzyme engineered for thermostability at temperatures as high as 70 °C. In addition, it is stable at ambient temperature and automation-friendly, making it ideal for custom one-step RT-qPCR assays.

Improve mRNA capping efficiency

Produce capped synthetic mRNA at high yield and low immunogenicity with Codex® HiCap RNA Polymerase. Greater capping efficiency and the production of less double-stranded RNA byproduct deliver exceptional IVT results

High-fidelity results for NGS

Have greater confidence in library amplification results with Codex® HiFi Hot Start DNA Polymerase, delivering greater library complexity, high yields, and enhanced uniformity of coverage.

A DNA ligase with superior ligation efficiency

Boost assay sensitivity and improve the number of successfully processed samples with a ligase engineered to address sequencing challenges.
