Overcoming challenges in FFPE DNA library prep
Posted on Wednesday, October 25, 2023 By
Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples hold invaluable genetic insights, yet library preparation is notoriously challenging. FFPE preservation processes damage DNA, resulting in low yields, non-uniform ends, and other issues. Our advanced enzymatic solutions tackle these challenges, enabling the full utilization of FFPE samples for genetic analysis.
Superior error detection using Authenticase™ enhances assembled gene synthesis
Posted on Tuesday, September 5, 2023 By
Gene synthesis often grapples with residual errors in DNA fragments, making traditional error detection methods labor-intensive and expensive. Authenticase™ employs structure-specific enzymes for proficient error correction. Paired with Q5® High-Fidelity DNA Polymerase, it enhances DNA quality and simplifies the synthesis workflow.

Adding Capabilities to CRISPR-Cas-Based Biotechnology
Posted on Tuesday, May 30, 2023 By
The Robb Lab at NEB collaborates with both academic and industry researchers in their mission of discovery, characterization, and application development efforts with CRISPR-Cas systems. It’s always galvanizing to look to the origin of CRISPR tools and consider how this scientific field has expanded into multiple substrate types and applications over time. While NEB produces many useful Cas nucleases to support research and development, the Robb Lab is always pursuing novel, distinctive properties – inspired by the abundance and diversity of Cas nucleases found in nature.
