Probe chemistry: Universal ProbeLibrary probes use a unique nucleotide chemistry called LNA (Locked Nucleic Acid), which allows very short (8-9 bases) oligonucleotides to be effective hybridization probes in real-time PCR assays. LNA allows the melting temperature of the short probes to be unusually high. Thus, they are fully compatible with commonly used PCR conditions and the hydrolysis-probe detection format. These probes are even sensitive enough to detect single-base mismatches.

Assay design: The free online ProbeFinder software, available at the Universal ProbeLibrary Assay Design Center, designs one or more intron-spanning assays for a target gene, based on specific information (i.e., gene name, accession number, or sequence) that you submit. For each assay it designs, the software will specify a set of specific primers plus a probe from the Universal ProbeLibrary that will give the best results. The combination of primers and probe will provide specific amplification and detection of your target sequence in a standard real-time PCR assay.

Labeling: pre-labeled with a reporter fluorophore (FAM) and a dark quencher dye.

Instrumentation required: standard real-time PCR instrumentation.

Notes: In addition to being available individually, the Universal ProbeLibrary probes are available in sets (90 probes/set), each of which covers virtually all the transcripts from a single organism. Together, the sets cover approximately 99% of the human, primate, mouse, rat, C. elegans, Drosophila, and Arabidopsis gene transcripts listed in the NCBI Reference Sequence Database.
For more information, see the listings for these organism-specific sets.
