Apticraft Systems has announced the successful completion of a module for Primer Premier, a project assigned by PREMIER Biosoft International, USA.

“Primer Premier 6.00 has been developed to enable users to design highly specific PCR and SNP genotyping assays. The powerful algorithm implemented also enables the use of well proven primers and designs a compatible set, given any one primer.” said Shonali Paul, Director, Apticraft Systems.

The program employs an algorithm to avoid homology and template secondary structures regions to aid in providing specificity to the primers.

"Although the software interface design was challenging, the goal was to make it user friendly.  Scientists at Apticraft were able to overcome the challenge through extensive domain research including the study of scientific publications, communication with users and several rounds of rigorous testing to output the best oligos," commented Shonali Paul.

"Primer Premier 6 is a powerful tool for designing highly specific standard PCR assays. We are committed to keeping pace with the needs of research and rely on  Apticraft for architecting complex algorithms.” commented Kay Brown, V.P. Business Development and Marketing.
