Changes to LNA ordering
In August 2009, IDT ceased selling custom LNA oligonucleotides, with the exception of PrimeTime® LNA Probes.
You can purchase other LNA oligonucleotides from Exiqon.
IDT manufactures and sells LNA oligonucleotides directly to researchers as a part of our LNA PrimeTime probes. IDT LNA PrimeTime Probes are licensed by both Exiqon and Applied Biosystems for use in the 5' nuclease assay for research applications. LNA PrimeTime Probes are, and will continue to be, the only probes licensed by both companies that can be provided as complete assays, containing both primers and dual-labeled probes (currently available as a custom service). Contact IDT Customer Care or view more information on PrimeTime LNA probes.
IDT also manufactures a broad selection of custom LNA oligonucleotides at multiple scales, which can be combined with other modifications and purification services. Orders for LNA oligonucleotides other than LNA PrimeTime Probes must be placed through Exiqon.
If you have any questions regarding ordering of LNA oligonucleotides through IDT or Exiqon A/S, please contact IDT Customer Care. We are excited to be able to provide LNA probes directly to our customers.
Frequently asked questions
Does IDT currently offer any LNA oligonucleotides?
IDT has retained the right to sell LNA oligonucleotides as part of its PrimeTime LNA Probes product offering. IDT PrimeTime LNA Probes are the only dual-labeled LNA probes licensed by both Exiqon and Life Technologies for use in complete assays, containing both primers and PrimeTime LNA Probes (currently available as a custom service). Contact IDT Customer Care or view more information on the PrimeTime LNA probes page. All other custom LNA oligonucleotides must be purchased through Exiqon.
Does Exiqon offer the same custom LNA oligonucleotide products that were previously available from IDT?
Exiqon offers a broad selection of custom LNA oligonucleotides at various scales with many modifications and purification services. Most of the scales, modifications, and services previously offered by IDT are now available from Exiqon. However, due to different licensing arrangements, some modifications that were previously available from IDT may not be available from Exiqon. Exiqon and IDT have teamed up to ensure that there is a process for handling orders for these types of products. For modifications required for your LNA-based research that are not available from Exiqon, please contact Exiqon or IDT customer service for information on this process.
How do I order LNA oligonucleotides?
PrimeTime LNA Probes are sold through our web site. To order other custom LNA oligonucleotides, contact Exiqon or visit the Exiqon website.
