New! Online oligo order form

Online oligo order form

Design your own oligonucleotides

Bothell, WA, December 6, 2023 — ELITechGroup MDx LLC (EGMDx) announced availability of their new online oligo ordering form, showcasing the company’s proprietary reagents and production methods. EGMDx is a pioneer in the PCR field, having invented oligos conjugated to a minor groove binder (MGB probes) and developed optimized methods for their design and production.

EGMDx has made numerous contributions to DNA detection technology over the last several decades, focused on PCR and other nucleic acid amplification and detection technologies. MGB and its chimeric quenching analogue, “DSQ” or duplex stabilizing quencher, are among EGMDx’s duplex-stabilizing modifications available through the online ordering portal. Additional proprietary reagents include a spectrum of fluorophores and quenchers, Tm-modulating nucleosides, universal bases, and highly stable modified phosphate backbones which do not interact with DNA or RNA.

“Our new online oligo ordering form is warmly anticipated by the chemistry community,” said Scott Johnston, General Manager. Johnston added, “Our intent is to make the form intuitive and accessible to a wide range of customers, spanning those who want an off the shelf oligo with standard modifications to those who have very specific design requirements in mind.”

EGMDx offers multiple oligo design solutions via their vast toolbox of oligonucleotide labeling products. EGMDx now enables customers to create their own specialty compounds, which in turn can be used to develop diagnostic assays and commercial kits. These custom oligo designs are realized by the EGMDx manufacturing team, experts in highly modified specialty oligonucleotide synthesis within an ISO 13485:2016 environment.
