Synthesis Scales

 
Microsynth is offering its DNA oligos at 5 different scales. For large scale synthesis please get in contact with our experts.
The available standard scales are Genomics, 0.04 µmol, 0.2 µmol, 1.0 µmol and 15 µmol.
As the yield and length restrictions depend also on the purification used please have a look at the tables below.

1 The synthesis scale represents the initial amount of 3' bases (starting material).
2 Our guaranteed and average yields are measured in OD and are valid only for unmodified oligos >20mer.
3 Yields indicated in nmol represent an example calculation for a 20mer. For this calculation the following rule of thumb equation was applied: nmol of oligo = OD x 100/length of oligo. Please note that this calculation is based on sequences with virtually homogenous distribution of the 4 DNA bases; it may vary for sequences with high GC contents >70% etc.
4 Oligos longer than 150 DNA bases on request (we would like to discuss the proposed experiment/application with you beforehand in order to guarantee the best possible outcome)

Modifications

 

Microsynth offers a wide variety of modifications (5’, 3’ and internal) for DNA oligonucleotides. To give you a better overview, they have been categorized as:

Important - Please Note!
Microsynth is continuously expanding its portfolio of dyes which can be used as cost-effective alternatives to patent-protected dyes.
Examples are the following: 
  • Yakima Yellow or ATTO 532 for VIC™
  • ATTO550 for NED™
  • ATTO565 for PET™
  • Dyomics630 for LIZ™
  • LI-COR Sequencer compatible dyes Dy681/781 as alternatives for IRDyes® 700/80
