NEB Tools brings New England Biolabs’ most popular web tools to your iPhone. Use Enzyme Finder to select a restriction enzyme by category or recognition sequence, or search by name to find information on any NEB enzyme. Sort your results so they make sense to you, then email them to your inbox or connect directly to www.neb.com. Determine buffer and reaction conditions for experiments requiring two restriction enzymes using the Double Digest Finder. When using either of these tools, look for Time-Saver and HF enzymes for the ultimate in convenience. Use Tm Calculator to calculate optimum annealing temperature for PCR primers when using NEB polymerases and buffers. Conveniently retrieve suggested PCR cycler settings for NEB polymerases. NEB Tools for the iPhone enables quick and easy access to the most requested restriction enzyme information, and allows you to plan your experiments from anywhere.
What's New in Version 1.7.2
Version 1.7.2 of NEB Tools correctly handles number formats in regions using commas in place of decimal points. This allows proper setting of amplicon size in the PCR cycler settings view.
Great for quick reference!
If you're like our lab, and not everyone has the catalogue, then this app is great. When you can't find your catalogue because someone "borrowed" it... again... just pull out the app!
Downsides are it's obviously not going to be as in depth as the catalogue or full online resources, but it's a quick reference guide. It's also only with the new buffers now, so if you're stocked up on buffers 1-4 then go ahead and grab the catalogue.
