Sigma Life Science adds Oligoarchitect™ for qPCR tO Online Portfolio of Scientific Tools
Product News Feb 21, 2011
The easy-to-use OligoArchitect software uses the latest probe design algorithms, providing results in real time and supporting templates of up to 10,000 base pairs. It also allows users to adjust various input parameters – such as homopolymer run/repeat maximum length, G/C clamp length and maximum primer pair Tm mismatch – to help optimize probe or primer design.
“After years of successful use internally by our technical support team, we wanted to offer this powerful tool directly to our customers,” said Tom Russell, Product Manager at Sigma Life Science. "We chose to use Beacon Designer because it offers best-in-class performance and is highly regarded by the research community.”
OligoArchitect currently supports both SYBR® Green I and dual-labeled probe (5’ nuclease assay) detection chemistries with additional detection chemistries and assays expected to be added later this year, making it ideally suited to key applications in traditional PCR, endpoint genotyping, gene expression analysis, genomic copy number determination, allele discrimination, SNP detection and haplotyping.
