Design-Print-Test-Learn, Fast

More than ever before, science and innovation are in a race for results, whether it is an upcoming scientific publication, a new diagnostic test or even a vaccine. Researchers need to get there faster, and the SYNTAX Kits enable users to print DNA for a wide range of genomics and synthetic biology applications and accelerate their development workflows.

The speed of the SYNTAX System and the breadth of applications enabled by the SYNTAX synthesis kits allow genomics researchers who need DNA oligos, primers, and probes for real-time qPCR, digital PCR, Sanger sequencing and next-gen sequencing (NGS), synthetic biology (CRISPR, gene synthesis, and mutagenesis), and FISH and smFISH applications to be done with their experiments before others can start.

An Expanding List of Applications

With a single benchtop SYNTAX System and an expanding line of kits for various applications, users can continue to eliminate bottlenecks and rapidly iterate through their experiments by replacing oligos ordered from commercial suppliers with oligos printed in-house.

  • Print oligos up to 80 nt in length
  • Synthesize hydrolysis probes and primers in the same run, in as little as 8 hours
  • Print oligos with a yield of at least 600 pmol and concentration of at least 7 µM
  • Label probes with fluorophores, quenchers, or biotin

SYNTAX 60-Cycle Kit, 96 Oligos

SYNTAX 60-Cycle Kit, 96 Oligos includes the reagents and consumables required for the parallel enzymatic synthesis of 96 ready-to-use DNA oligos of up to 60 nt in length. Oligos are synthesized rapidly to enable same or next day use in downstream workflows.

  • Flexible runs: Perform up to two runs per kit using the SYNTAX System to synthesize up to 96 DNA oligos of ≤60 nt or 192 oligos of ≤30 nt in two runs in a 96-well format.
  • Fast synthesis: Oligos are ready for use in 7-13 hours depending on the length of the longest oligo.
  • No harsh chemicals: Enzymatic DNA Synthesis (EDS) technology enables automated template-free synthesis without hazardous reagents.
  • Application-ready output: Oligos are desalted and normalized in molecular biology grade water and suitable for downstream applications.
  • Custom iDNA: Add a leading 5’ sequence of 15-40 nt to all oligos synthesized (maximum total length of 100 nt) using the SYNTAX 60-Cycle Custom iDNA Kit, 96 Oligos (sold separately).

SYNTAX 80-Cycle Kits, 96 Oligos

The SYNTAX 80-Cycle Kits, 96 Oligos include the reagent and consumables required for the parallel enzymatic synthesis of 96 ready-to-use DNA oligos of up to 80 nt in length. Oligos are synthesized rapidly to enable the same or next day use in downstream workflows. Both the synthesis and processing kits are required for oligo synthesis using the SYNTAX System.

  • Flexible runs: Synthesize up to 96 oligos of ≤80 nt in one run or up to 384 oligos of ≤20 nt in four runs using the SYNTAX 80-Cycle Synthesis Kit. One SYNTAX 80-Cycle Processing Kit, 96 Oligos is required per run. (All runs must be performed within 7 days.)
  • Fast synthesis: Oligos are ready in less than a day with the workflow completed in approximately 7-17 hours depending on oligo length.
  • No harsh chemicals: Enzymatic DNA Synthesis (EDS) technology enables automated template-free synthesis without hazardous reagents.
  • Application-ready output: Oligos are desalted and normalized in molecular biology grade water and suitable for downstream applications.
  • Custom iDNA: Add a leading 5’ DNA sequence of up to 45 nt to all oligos synthesized (maximum total length of 125 nt) using the SYNTAX 80-Cycle Custom iDNA Processing Kit (sold separately).

SYNTAX 192 Label Kit

The SYNTAX 192 Label Kit includes supplemental reagents and consumables required for the parallel enzymatic synthesis of 96 ready-to-use labeled DNA probes on a SYNTAX System. Labeled probes are synthesized rapidly in less than a day, enabling same or next day use in downstream workflows. Probe synthesis requires the SYNTAX 80-Cycle Synthesis Kit, 96 Oligos, the SYNTAX 80-Cycle Processing Kit, 96 Oligos, and SYNTAX Labels (sold separately).

  • Rapidly synthesize up to 96 ready-to-use labeled probes in less than a day on a SYNTAX system.
  • Use labeled probes for a variety of techniques, including qPCR/dPCR, NGS target enrichment, and FISH. 
  • Select from a menu of SYNTAX Labels that includes five fluorophores, three quenchers, or biotin. Up to two labels can be incorporated in each probe. (Each sold separately.)
  • Enzymatic DNA Synthesis (EDS) technology enables automated template-free synthesis without hazardous reagents.
  • Fluorophores and quenchers are available in 16 and 48 reaction sizes. Biotin available in 96 reaction size.
