Important Update

Beginning May 8, 2022, BHQ™ (Black Hole Quencher™) 1 and 2 will no longer be available as a modification to Custom DNA Oligos and Custom qPCR Probes. The replacements will be BXQ™ (Block All Quencher™) 1 and 2. Information about the BXQ dark quenchers will be added from time-to-time to key oligo landing pages up until the date of change. As these key landing pages are updated, this message will be updated to provide links to the new information. If you have any questions, please contact your local company representative.

Alternatively, to learn more about BXQ, please visit the manufacturer’s website: BXQ | AAT Bioquest.
