Site-Directed Mutagenesis Service

abm has over 10 years experience with Site-Directed Mutagenesis. We have successfully completed hundreds of orders including modification of plasmid DNA restriction sites, point mutations (insertions/deletions) and tag additions/removals. For larger plasmids and large fragment insertions/deletions, difficult templates, and other mutagenesis requests, please inquire with us below. 

Procedure PCR-Based Mutagenesis
Delivery Format Plasmid DNA
Lead Time In as little as 2-3 weeks for orders of 1.0 μg of DNA
Quality Control Full-length sequencing to confirm presence of mutation
DNA Submission Guidelines At least 5 μg DNA per clone required (>100 ng/μl). Plasmids must be high copy plasmids. For medium or low copy plasmids, please inquire.

Does this also apply for insertions/deletions/mutations that span >25 consecutive base pairs?
Pricing for Cat# C047 only applies for insertions/deletions/mutations that span <25 consecutive base pairs or fewer. Additional charges may apply for any insertions/deletions/mutations above the initial 25bp.
