High-fidelity PCR enzymes are used for applications requiring high accuracy during DNA amplification such as cloning, sequencing or mutagenesis. Thermo Scientific Phusion high-fidelity DNA polymerases were created by fusing a dsDNA-binding domain to a Pyrococcus polymerase–like proofreading enzyme. Due to this unique protein fusion engineering, Phusion DNA Polymerases have very low error rates, fast extension rates, and high inhibitor tolerance.
