  • A series of useful services just for FREE 
    • Standard but also specific primers can be added to your sample
    • Failed reactions will be repeated on request
    • Special treatment for GC-rich templates1
    • Possibility to fine-tune software analysis parameters to achieve your desired performance
    • Helpful online tools enabling you to oversee your stock of labels and primers but also to share it amongst your group members
    • Convenient sample pickup service; if not available for your location, you can use our prepaid and pre-addressed envelopes for mail shipment
  • Further convenient services at a small extra charge
    • PCR purification
    • Advanced sequencing protocol for difficult-to-sequence samples2
    • Overnight in-house production of specific sequencing primers

Important – Please Note!

Free pick-up service: Our customers in Switzerland (Basel, Bern, Lausanne and Zurich) and Austria (Graz, Innsbruck and Vienna) may benefit from our free pick-up service. In order to determine whether there is a Microsynth collection box in your immediate vicinity, please register/ login and see under “View Collection Points”. For all customers without a Microsynth collection box close by, Microsynth offers convenient and cost-free shipment of samples via its pre-paid and pre-addressed envelopes.
Fastest overnight sequencing service on market: Customers in Switzerland and Austria (Graz and Vienna) with direct access to a Microsynth collection box may benefit from Microsynth’s very fast overnight sequencing service. Samples are sequenced overnight and results are already available in the night/early morning, at the latest before the start of your work; from Monday until Saturday.

Orders including primer synthesis or primer design services as well as PCR purifications will not be processed overnight but will be processed the following working day or when all primers are ready.

 1 You are recommended to choose this option in case your sequence contains GC-rich sequences or hairpin structures. We then apply a protocol which has been developed specifically for GC-rich sequencing templates. Routine samples show best results with the standard protocol, whereas GC-rich samples show best results with this specific protocol.
2 You are recommended to choose this option only in case you have difficult-to-sequence samples which could not be successfully sequenced with our cost-free sequencing protocols (default standard protocol and GC-rich Treatment).
