Oligonucleotide synthesis: valves and block solutions for exact dosing in oligo synthesizers
There is growing demand for synthetic DNA for use in research. One method of producing these types of artificial DNA strands is oligonucleotide synthesis. This process requires exact dosing of up to twelve different liquids in the microlitre (μl) range. The purity of an oligo is primarily determined by its full length and the correct order of bases. This dosing process used in the production of oligonucleotides places high demands on the synthesizers: In addition to the purity of the oligos, a high process speed is required in order to make the process economical.
How can you ensure the controlled and reliable production of high-quality DNA strands? Read on to discover how valves and valve systems from Bürkert can help you dose faster and more efficiently.
