How is a gBlocks™ HiFi Gene Fragment different from a gBlocks Gene Fragment?

The combination of speed, cost, and purity make gBlocks™ Gene Fragments (IDT) an ideal solution for most applications, but in some applications, such as the assembly of larger constructs, starting with a fragment with a lower error rate may significantly reduce costs. gBlocks HiFi Gene Fragments use a proprietary manufacturing technique that can generate double-stranded DNA fragments with average error rates of 1:12,000, which is approximately 2.5–4x fewer errors than other commercially available gene fragments.
