PolyGen GmbH has recently launched a new 12 column DNA/RNA Oligonucleotide Synthesizer which uses their patented Slider Block Technology. The oligo synthesizer was exhibited by PrimeSyn Lab Inc. at the Oligonucleotide Therapeutic Society Conference at Rockefeller University, N.Y.
The PolyGen 12 column oligonucleotide synthesizer has been configured to synthesize DNA, RNA & LNA oligos within a very compact (41 x 43 x 40 cm) and light weight (35kg) design. The PolyGen synthesizer utilizes a unique patented Slider Block Technology to increase efficiency and reliability, which is ideal for a lab that doesn't synthesize large volumes of oligos everyday. The synthesizer can be operated with 1 to 12 columns in a single run. The synthesizer is capable of making a coupling every 30 seconds, so in less than 3hrs you can synthesize 12 oligos of 20mer.
Some of the key features of the PolyGen 12 column synthesizer include: Scale Flexibility 10nmole up to 5umole per column, patented Slider Block Technology - no valve replacements & maintenance- free, low reagent consumption and low dead volumes (ca. 3 l), no expensive pre-packed columns necessary, individual column monitoring DMT, short cycle time for synthesis, 8 Amidite position, optional software, pump-driven system (low gas consumption).
