The Nucleic Acids Core Facility (NACF) provides investigators with low-cost, high-quality oligonucleotides for use in a

wide range of applications including DNA sequencing, PCR, cDNA/RNA synthesis, hybridization, in vitro mutagenesis and anti-sense inhibition of gene expression. Oligonucleotides are available at five synthesis scales ranging from 40 nmoles to 10 umoles. A wide range of custom synthesis scales are available, including RNA oligomers, phosphorthioate oligomers, degenerate oligos and labeling with biotin, fluorescein and many other compounds. All oligos are tested by gel electrophoresis to verify successful synthesis.

Oligonucleotides are provided deprotected and dried. Most users find that no purification is needed before use in PCR and manual DNA sequencing. The NACF provides custom purification services for users who require more highly purified synthetic nucleic acids.

The NACF also maintains a freezer stocked with PCR-related enzymes and reagents from Perkin-Elmer. Customers using the freezer receive a discounted price and pay no shipping charges.
