IDT is committed to quality. Through maintenance of strict methods and analysis, we ensure that each and every product meets rigorous standards. We are the only oligonucleotide manufacturer that offers a 100% QC guarantee, and provides product specific quality data free of charge on the customer’s online account.

IDT constantly monitors its internal quality versus competitor quality by testing synthesis in head-to-head blind studies. Standard desalted oligos are used  for the most recent data, testing standard, unmodified 44–46mer purity. For analysis these oligos are run through 3 separate tests by capillary electrophoresis on 3 separate days. They also each undergo an analytical IE-HPLC and analytical RP-HPLC test.

IDT oligos exhibit higher overall percent purity with smaller variance than all other competitors tested. Although 2 out of the 3 competitors reached >70% purity for some oligos, the average purity for all three was below 66% pure. In contrast, every single oligo tested from IDT maintained purity that was consistently high. All IDT oligos tested were ≥72% pure with an average purity of 75%.

IDT continuously strives to bring customers the best in oligonucleotide synthesis and quality control.
