Probe Design & Synthesis Service

abm offers a one-stop TaqMan Probe Design Service, aiming to save time, effort, and money by preventing complications or even failures in qPCR experiments. A well designed probe is one of the key requirements for a successful qPCR. Using appropriate software and virtual simulation, scientists at abm are able to design TaqMan Probes with minimal predicted complication of secondary structure at the binding sequence region on the template, thus ensuring an effective binding and ultimately an efficient hydrolysis of the probe. However, the effectiveness of the TaqMan probe still needs to be tested experimentally and thus our probe design service provides two probe designs, as a fail safe. In very rare cases, a re-design of probes will be provided without additional charges if both initially designed probes do not work in assay.

Additional Info

abm offers traditional dual-labelled probes for use in real-time PCR to increase efficiency, sensitivity and specificity, as well as allowing simultaneous detection of multiple gene targets in a single reaction. We offer qPCR probes in a variety of reporter/quencher combinations. All probes are HPLC purified and are delivered in lyophilized powder in tube format. The following table outlines our synthesis scale and the minimum guarantee OD yield for each service.

Cat. No 5’ Reporter Dye Quencher Synthesis Scale Min Guarantee Yield (OD) Min Guarantee Yield (nmol)
C134 6’FAM BHQ1 100 nmol 2.0 OD 10 nmol
C135 6’FAM BHQ1 250 nmol 5.0 OD 25 nmol
C136 HEX BHQ1 100 nmol 2.0 OD 10 nmol
C137 HEX BHQ1 250 nmol 5.0 OD 25 nmol
C331 ROX BHQ2 250 nmol 1.5 OD 8 nmol
C332 Cy5 BHQ2 100 nmol 0.4 OD 2 nmol
C333 Cy5 BHQ2 250 nmol 1.5 OD 8 nmol
C334 6'FAM TAMRA 100 nmol 2.0 OD 10 nmol
C335 6'FAM TAMRA 250 nmol 5.0 OD 25 nmol
1. The synthesis scale indicates the initial amount of 3'-bases.
2. Average OD yield was determined for a 20-mer; Calculation: 1 OD = 5 nmol = 30 ug; may vary for sequences with GC content >70%, >3 purine stretches, or strong secondary structures.
