Surveyor® Mutation Detection Kits

A simple and robust method for detecting DNA alterations

Surveyor Mutation Detection Kits allow quick and easy detection of mutations and polymorphisms in DNA. The key component of the kits, Surveyor Nuclease, a member of the CEL family of mismatch-specific nucleases, recognizes and cleaves mismatches due to the presence of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) or small insertions or deletions.

  • Detect base-substitution and insertion/deletion mismatches
  • Identify mutations in DNA fragments up to 3.5 kb with a single reaction
  • Quickly determine the number of mutations by observing the number of cleavage products

For detecting CRISPR genome editing events, we recommend the Alt-R® Genome Editing Detection Kit .
