Powered by Enzymatic DNA Synthesis (EDS) Technology, the SYNTAX System is a DNA printer that enables on-demand synthesis of custom DNA oligos in a benchtop solution. Designed for speed, convenience, flexibility, and ease of use, SYNTAX enables you to create custom oligos in your own lab without the need for specialized infrastructure or technical skills.

Printing your own DNA oligos on-site can give you more control over workflows, sequencing information, and security, and mitigates delays and other logistical challenges from third-party manufacturing. Enjoy higher productivity, more predictable project schedules, and fewer hidden costs to accelerate the pace of innovation and fuel discoveries.

  • Same-day synthesis of 15-30 nt oligos enables two runs in 24 hours
  • Synthesize oligos overnight for next-day use


  • 15–120 nt de novo synthesis (A, T, G, and C)
  • Custom iDNA of 1–45 nt available
  • Default 5′-phosphate
  • Ready-to-use oligos for molecular biology and genomics applications
  • Modify oligos with fluorophores, quenchers, and biotin

Simple, Guided Setup Lets Anyone Print Oligos from Anywhere

Printing oligos is simple with the SYNTAX System. The SYNTAX System comes with an integrated touchscreen and on-board computer running the SYNTAX System Software. With the System Software, users are guided through the steps to start a run in 15 to 30 minutes. Once a run starts, the System Software automates all of the synthesis, post-processing, and concentration normalization of the oligos.

More powerful yet still simple, Console Software lets users interact with the SYNTAX System from their PC through the cloud or through an on-premises local network. With Console Software, users can upload sequence files, schedule and track every synthesis run, monitor run progress and instrument performance, and view and manage results.
