Maize SSR Primer

Using the Maize SSR Primer Set to screen SSR markers for mapping projects:

  • Reduces the upfront costs of custom oligos synthesis. 
  • Reduces the time and labor involved in compiling primer sequences from SSR databases and assembling custom oligo orders
  • Virtually eliminates human error inherent in diluting and aliquoting large sets of primers.

Product Format
The Maize SSR Primer Set has 384 unique primer pairs contained in four 96-well plates. The primers are shipped lyophilized at 50µM/200µl and are easily reconstituted with TE buffer. Working stocks of 2.5µM are created with a single dilution an additional 96-well PCR plates are included with each set.
