Q.

What are the key benefits of using synthetic ultrapure dNTPs?

A.

Key benefits of using our dNTPs include an increase in assay performance and simplification of your incoming material QC process. Additionally, all our dNTPs are made chemical synthetically so they contain no enzymatic activity. Most other commercial dNTPs are prepared using enzymatic processes that result in trace amounts of Nicking, DNase and RNase activities. Our ultrapure dNTPs do not contain unwanted base modified nucleotides, 3'-triphosphate or tetraphosphate.

Q.

What's your other expertise?

A.

In addition to dNTPs, modified triphosphate and dye labeled triphosphate products, we are also specialized in making modified nucleoside phosphoramidites. We have the capacity to make multi-kgs/year of modified phosphoramidites.

Q.

I don't see the modified nucleoside triphosphate or phosphoramidite that I need commercially available; can you make it for me?

A.

Yes, absolutely. We can make custom modified nucleoside triphosphate or phosphoramidite by using the modified nucleoside made by us or supplied by you.

Q.

What's your production capacity for nucleoside triphosphate?

A.

We can make custom nucleoside triphosphate from 1mg to 100g/batch. We will also formulate and aliquot product based on your concentration and volume requirements.

Q.

Can you make polyphosphates?

A.

Yes. We can make modified dN4Ps to dN9Ps.
