Premier Biosoft International has announced the release of version 5.10 of Beacon Designer with advanced support for multiplexing, crucial for diagnostic assay development. Beacon Designer is their oligo design tool for real time qRT-PCR.

"With the release of Beacon Designer Version 5.10, Premier Biosoft International has taken a step further in making a comprehensive, sophisticated and powerful qPCR oligo design tool available to thousands of labs all over the world," says Kay Brown, V.P. Business Development and Marketing.

"We are particularly pleased with the biologist designed user interface and comprehensive support for multiplexing."

Premier claims that, Beacon Designer can design SYBR® Green primers, TaqMan® probes, LNA spiked TaqMan® probes, FRET probes or molecular beacons for real time qRT-PCR and NASBA® assays.

Beacon Designer also enables the design of compatible probes for SYBR® Green assays. Beacon Designer uses the sophisticated algorithms to ensure assay success.

Primers are designed avoiding regions of significant homology, identified by automatically interpreting BLAST search results. Primer efficiency is enhanced by designing them in template-structure-free regions.

For multiplexing, Beacon Designer screens millions of primer probe combinations to design primer probe sets for single tube multiplex reactions.

Whether the need is to incorporate sets for some of the templates, or include reference or housekeeping genes for normalization purposes in the assay, Beacon Designer is fully equipped.
