Custom DNA and RNA Oligos & qPCR Probes Product Resources

Featured Articles and Protocols

  • Coronavirus qPCR Primer and probe sets for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 (Corona Virus), with additional real-time RT-PCR, RT-qPCR and supporting reagents available.
  • We offer OligoEvaluator™ as an easy-to-use Oligo Analyzer tool for online oligonucleotide sequence calculator that provides primer dimer analysis values for PCR and calculation of Tm.
  • Learn about the steps in phosphoramidite solid-phase method of Oligonucleotide Synthesis method that we use for DNA oligonucleotide manufacturing.
  • Annealing is the process of heating and cooling two single-stranded oligonucleotides with complementary sequences. Heat breaks all hydrogen bonds, and cooling allows new bonds to form between the sequences.

Technical Literature

  • Learn about the steps in phosphoramidite solid-phase method of Oligonucleotide Synthesis method that we use for DNA oligonucleotide manufacturing.
  • This technical bulletin will help you select the best purification option for your oligo, depending upon the oligo type and its intended application.
  • DNA absorbs ultraviolet light due to its highly conjµgated nature. DNA may thus be easily quantitated in a UV spectrometer.
  • Several phosphate backbone variants have been developed in an attempt to alter the chemical properties of native-state DNA and therefore overcome the two major challenges involved with using oligonucleotides in vivo.
  • The ultimate goal of most antisense research is to develop therapeutic agents for diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and HIV/ AIDS. Phosphorothioate oligonucleotides (commonly referred to as S-oligos) are often the molecules of choice because of their resistance to cellular nuclease degradation.
  • There is a wide selection of possible custom probes that can be used for qPCR, and each has advantages for different applications.
  • Digital PCR (dPCR) is an end-point PCR method that is used for absolute quantification and for analysis of minority sequences against a background of similar majority sequences.
  • Frequently asked questions about Locked Nucleic Acids (LNA)
  • Two commonly used quenchers, TAMRA™ and DABYCL, limit the ultimate sensitivity and flexibility of qPCR. TAMRA is not a dark quencher and therefore contributes to an overall increase in background because of its own native fluorescence. DABCYL, though a dark quencher, has an inadequate absorption footprint that overlaps very poorly with reporter dyes emitting above 480 nm.
  • Oligonucleotide Handling & Stability is a techniques in order to ensure trouble-free experiments. Proper storage of your oligo will maximize its shelf life, allowing you to get the most use from the oligo
  • Calculate the melting temperature (Tm) of oligonucleotides using theoretical method like the nearest neighbor or the basic method. The DNA Tm is the temperature at which 50% of the oligonucleotide is duplexed with its perfect complement and 50% is free in solution.
