What is the standard delivery vector IDT uses for Genes and MiniGene™ Synthetic Genes?

In order to optimize manufacturing and delivery time, synthetic genes ≤5 kb in length will be provided in a "best-fit" IDT cloning vector. A choice of either ampicillin or kanamycin selection markers is available. Your high-quality, synthetic gene can then be subcloned into the vector of your choice using a variety of methods. For more information, and a list of the IDT cloning vectors see the table here. The identity of the cloning vector used, its sequence, and insertion site will be confirmed in the documentation accompanying the product.
