DNA Custom oligos: Don't be fooled!

DNA OLIGOS are provided in different synthesis scales. How many OD units or nanomol do you get for your synthesis scale? Read more online

DNA OLIGOS are provided in different synthesis scales. But not all laboratories obtain the same yields for the different synthesis scales, meaning that you are paying for synthesis scale but it does not take into account how many OD units or nanomol you will receive.

ISOGEN LIFE SCIENCE provides high yields for all synthesis scales. Therefore you don't need to order higher scales. Thanks to our production standards you can order HPLC purified oligonucleotides at the 10 nmol synthesis scale.

PCR plastics

Isogen Life Science offers a full range of high quality plastics for PCR including PCR tubes, PCR strips and well plates.

Our team knows how important your PCR reactions are and how long takes to set up your protocol to have reproducible and good results. This is why we want to provide you good quality plastics for any protocol or system that you have in your lab.

All our plastic for PCR are Certified RNase-, DNase- and DNA- and Endotoxin free and manufactured to strict QC standards with ultra-thin walls to ensure rapid thermal transfer. Standard pack size: 1000 tubes per pack.

PCR tubes

We offer 2 different volumes: 0.2 or 0.5 ml. Available in natural color or mixed (mixed packs contain blue, green, red, violet and yellow tubes) with domed or flat caps.

If you want to have extra-clear plastic, this option is also available for your important qPCR reactions in 0.2 ml tubes.

If you have problems with contamination, the integral shield on the cap can help to prevent finger contamination with the surface of the lid.

PCR strips

8 - PCR Strips (Individually Attached Caps), 0.2 ml and 0.1 ml

  • Polypropylene PCR strips
  • Individually attached caps eliminates the possibility of cross-contamination through accidental cap-tube mix ups
  • Angled lids allow the tubes to be nested together in racks without interfering with one another
  • Supplied in resealable bags
  • Certified RNase, DNase, DNA and PCR Inhibitor free
  • Domed caps, or extra clear flat caps for qPCR
  • Available as standard height (20.8 mm) or low-profile (15.2 mm) tubes
  • Mixed pack contains blue, green red, violet and yellow strips (24 of each)
  • Pack sizes: 120 strips or 5 x 24 strips

PCR Strips (Attached, Cap Strip)

8-Strip PCR Tubes, Attached Domed Cap Strip
  • Attached, hinged strip caps
  • Supplied in resealable bags
  • 0.2 ml. Pack sizes: 125 strips or 5 x 25 strips
8-Strip PCR Tubes, Attached Flat Cap Strip
  • Available with opaque, white tube with extra-clear caps for qPCR
  • Extra clear caps combined with natural tubes or white tubes
  • 0.2 ml. Pack size: 125 strips
8-Strip Non-Flex PCR Tubes, Individually Attached Caps

Non-flex tubes have a robust, triple link between each tube making them less flexible and easier to handle. These tubes are made by the latest 'twin shot' technology which enables a white tube and an optically clear cap to be made in the same mould. Ideal for qPCR, white tubes maximise reflectance for enhanced signal and the extra clear caps allow optimal signal transmission and detection.

  • Available with low-profile (15.2 mm) or standard height (20.8 mm) tubes
  • Pack sizes: 120 strips
  • 0.1 or 0.2 ml volume available
8-Strip PCR Tubes, Individually Attached Shielded Caps
  • Each domed cap has a shield to help prevent accidental finger contamination during opening.
  • 0.2 ml volume, 120 strips per pack and natural color.

PCR Well Plates

Not all plates are manufactured with the same plastics, accuracy and quality to ensure good results. Why is it important ? What can happen to the results?

Isogen Life Science offers a full range of well plates depending on your needs and instrument.
