GeneWorks has complemented its own local service with specialist services from Biosearch Technologies in the US.
As Distributor in Australia and New Zealand, GeneWorks offers you convenient access to all Biosearch Technologies DNA synthesis services. Famous for their development of the Black Hole Quencher, Biosearch specialises in synthesis of fluorescent primers and probes.
Primer and Probe Options
Standard single-labelled fluorescent primers
Amplifluor® primers - combining primer and probe in one molecule, often used for SNP/mutation detection studies.
Dual labeled fluorogenic probes with BHQ quenchers - wide selection of fluorophore-quencher combinations for TaqMan® probes.
Dual labeled fluorogenic probes with BHQ-Plus™ quencher - duplex stabilising technology raises Tm for greater sequence specificity.
Molecular Beacons - stem/loop structure FRET hybridisation probes.
Black Hole Scorpion® primers – employ a uni-molecular mechanism that acts faster in solution for instantaneous fluorescence in real-time PCR.
Stellaris FISH Probes– catalogued and custom probes for RNA detection.
ValuPanel Reagents – sets of probes and primers resolving genetic signatures of pathogens.
Real-time Assay Design
Biosearch have recently developed a convenient on-line design tool called RealTimeDesign™. This free, easy to use, yet powerful design application for real-time qPCR offers both Express and Custom Modes to accommodate the different levels of control that assays may require. The software links directly to NCBI to retrieve sequences according to accession number, and to confirm priming specificity. RealTimeDesign allows you to:
Design assays for Multiplex qPCR, SNP Genotyping, and Gene Expression
Design TaqMan®, BHQplus™, and Amplifluor® probes and primers and matching optimal primer pairs
Design anywhere from single assays to high-throughput batches
Save a list of your custom designs in your account "Design Run History"
Choose from Biosearch's wide selection of dyes and quenchers.
Plate Orders – Only AUD $0.28/base!
For those customers wanting to order oligos in 96-well plates, Biosearch offers standard desalted oligos (20-80-mers) in deep well plates. This service supplies a normalized 5 nmole of dry oligo at $0.28/base (ex GST) plus importation and shipping. Turnaround from order to delivery is within 2 weeks. RPC purification, oligo mixing and aliquoting services are also available for plate format oligos – please enquire.
How to Order
Orders for Biosearch Technologies services are handled completely separately from GeneWorks oligo orders. Special order forms are available for download from this page. GeneWorks places orders on your behalf with Biosearch and handles all importation and shipping of your order to you. The transaction is in Australian Dollars with GeneWorks.
