FAQ: What is the difference between Q5® and Q5U® Hot Start High-Fidelity DNA Polymerase?

Q5U Hot Start High-Fidelity DNA Polymerase is a modified version of Q5 High-Fidelity DNA Polymerase which efficiently incorporates dUTP and amplifies uracil-containing templates. This unique feature is ideal for preventing carryover contamination (in combination with dUTP and UDG), USER Cloning, and amplification of deaminated and damaged DNA.
