Product Type DecaLabel™ DNA Labeling Kit

DecaLabel DNA Labeling Kit is an advanced system for fast synthesis of radiolabeled DNA probes of high specific activity. It's based on the improved random-primed method developed by Feinberg and Vogelstein.

The primary improvement over traditional random-primer kits involves the use of random decamers instead of hexamers to ensure more efficient annealing with DNA at 37°C. In addition, Klenow Fragment, exo- has been genetically engineered to remove exonuclease activity. The improved enzyme does not degrade the labeled probe during reaction and allows high labeling yields even from low template amounts. DNA fragments of any length can be uniformly labeled. Two labeling mixes are provided for flexibility in using either radiolabeled dATP or dCTP.
