Oligo Synthesis

Oligos are short chains of nucleotides ranging from a few nucleotide bases to several dozen. The length of oligos can be customized based on research needs, and can be scaled up or down depending on the quantity needed. GENEWIZ Oligo Synthesis services provide a suite of oligo synthesis options to meet the ever-changing needs of the molecular bench scientist. From oligos for Sanger sequencing and PCR to oligos modified with your choice of over 200 chemical modifications, our oligo synthesis services provide the high-quality results you expect from Azenta with the breadth of oligo synthesis expertise you need for your experiments.

What are oligos used for?

Oligos (or oligonucleotides) are commonly used as primers in PCR (polymerase chain reactions) to selectively amplify target DNA sequences. They can be tagged with fluorescent dyes or radioisotopes for detection purposes. Oligos are often used in DNA sequencing, gene synthesis, and genetic testing, and can be modified for gene therapies or gene expression.
