DNA SynthesizersGene Forge 3900 and ABI 3900 and DNA Synthesizer

Two DNA synthesizers can synthesize DNA oligonucleotides with fast cycle times, low reagent consumption, and incomparable reliability.  They are ideal for synthesizing primers of various lengths from 15 to 100 mer at scales of 40 nmol, 1 micromol, and 0.2 micromole. The products –oligonucleotide are used in varied PCR assays, sequence reaction assay, clone screening, gene expression detection,  genotyping  and vaccine candidate screen,  as well as the disease related gene mutation detection. Two systems can produce up to 288 primer 20 mer length oligos at 40 and 200 nmol scales in less than 10 hours (six runs of 48).



u 3000 hplcU-3000 Thermo-Scientific HPLC system 

U-3000 Thermo-Scientific HPLC system is optimal performance and reliability for conventional LC applications. It runs at 620 bar maximum pressure and 100 Hz data rate , flow rate up to 10 ml/min covering all application needs. Genomics Core have oligo products every day, using this instrument to perform the  quality control, and the DNA oligonucleotide purification. This system ensures that the primer –DNA products are satisfied in varied PCR reactions, such as regular PCR, Real time PCR , ddPCR  assays and  DNA sequencing analysis  etc.
