IDT and LI-COR® Biosciences Sign Research Agreement
News Jan 07, 2009
Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) announces a license agreement with LI-COR Biosciences to manufacture oligos for worldwide sale using the LI-COR IRDye 700, IRDye 800, and IRDye 800CW infrared dyes.
As of November 15, 2008, LI-COR no longer manufactures custom IRDye labeled oligos; LI-COR now recommends IDT as a preferred supplier of custom oligos with its IRDye infrared dyes.
These near-infrared (NIR) dyes are designed as alternatives to visible fluorophore labeling; eliminating the challenges associated with background interference and can therefore significantly extend sequence read-length and base accuracy for DNA sequencing. Offering a wider dynamic range and minimal background, IRDye infrared dyes are highly sensitive, allowing scientists to reduce reagent usage and implement smaller detection geometries.
As a result, researchers using nucleic acid applications with NIR-based detection can now benefit from the quality of IDT’s oligos and the sensitivity of the LI-COR Bioscience IRDye infrared dye range.
