The DNA Splicers (Japanese: いでんしのくさび Gene Wedge) is a Key Item introduced in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. It can be used on Kyurem to fuse it with Reshiram or Zekrom into White Kyurem or Black Kyurem or to separate White Kyurem or Black Kyurem into its constituent Pokémon.
The process of fusing Kyurem and Reshiram or Zekrom is known as Absofusion (Japanese: 吸収合体 Absorb Union).
In the core series games
In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, the DNA Splicers are a key tool in Team Plasma's plans. Originally in Drayden's possession and hidden in the Opelucid Gym, they are stolen by the Shadow Triad after Team Plasma freezes Opelucid City. Later on, it is discovered that the DNA Splicers were passed on to Ghetsis when the player encounters him in the Giant Chasm. Ghetsis uses them to fuse Kyurem with N's ZekromB2/ReshiramW2 into Black KyuremB2/White KyuremW2.
While the player does not have a Black Kyurem or White Kyurem, the DNA Splicers can be used to fuse Kyurem with Reshiram or Zekrom to become White Kyurem or Black Kyurem, respectively.
While the player has a Black Kyurem or White Kyurem, the DNA Splicers can be used to separate White Kyurem or Black Kyurem into Kyurem and the original Reshiram or Zekrom. All properties of the Reshiram or Zekrom will be retained.
The DNA Splicers can only fuse together one Kyurem and Reshiram or Zekrom at a time. In order to fuse a Kyurem with a different Reshiram or Zekrom, any existing fusion must be undone.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 Animated Trailer
Though the DNA Splicers were never explicitly shown in the Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 Animated Trailer, it was implied to be the item the Shadow Triad had successfully stolen at the end of the trailer.
The DNA Splicers first appeared in The Frozen World, where they was revealed to be in Drayden's possession. In order to obtain the item for their plans, Team Plasma attacked Opelucid City while Colress used the Plasma Frigate to freeze the entire city, allowing Zinzolin to steal the DNA Splicers from Drayden.
The item was seen again in The King Returns, where Ghetsis used it to fuse Kyurem with N's Reshiram.
In the manga
The DNA Splicers first appeared in Abyssal Ruins, where Blake revealed that he had had them ever since he was a little child, not knowing how he got them. After Colress managed to make Zinzolin spill out his information regarding Kyurem's Absofusion, he relayed this information to Ghetsis, who had Kyurem call out to the DNA Splicers, causing them and Blake, who was trying to hold on to them, to fly up towards Kyurem. The item's energy eventually repelled Blake from it, and once Ghetsis ordered Kyurem to absorb N's Zekrom, Kyurem absorbed the DNA Splicers and forced Zekrom to turn into the Dark Stone, which it used to transform itself into Black Kyurem.
