Enzymatic DNA synthesis (EDS) is a new type of technology for DNA production. It employs three core components: 1) highly engineered terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT) enzymes; 2) reversibly terminated nucleotides; and 3) solid supports preloaded with iDNA. Learn more about EDS technology.
TdT is one of the three core components that makes EDS possible. Specialized TdT enzymes, chosen for their unique ability to add diversity during gene recombination, add reversibly-terminated nucleotides to the 3’-end of any single DNA strand with high fidelity and coupling efficiency.
Enzymatic synthesis offers the unique ability to add a pre-synthesized sequence to the 3’-end of existing, native, single-stranded DNA. While chemically synthesized DNA may use harsh chemicals, enzymatic synthesis is water-based, accessible to any lab, and can be run with same-day results for guaranteed delivery of custom DNA oligos.
SYNTAX System fits on most laboratory bench tops. For more information regarding bench & laboratory requirements, please contact customer support.
The SYNTAX System can synthesize oligos from 15nt to 60nt in length.
The SYNTAX system that is available on the market today synthesizes oligos up to 60nt long. We have shown that EDS can be used to synthesize oligos over 200nt long and are working hard to make that available to the market with new kits and products in the future.
All synthesized oligos are eluted into biology-grade water.
SYNTAX can synthesize 1-96 different oligos in parallel in a 96-well plate.
SYNTAX System synthesizes a 96-well plate of oligos 20nt in length in approximately 6 hours.
SYNTAX System synthesizes a 96-well plate of oligos 60nt in length in approximately 13 hours.
The SYNTAX System enables custom DNA oligo printing on a bench top instrument, giving you full control over oligo production and freeing you from delays and backorders due to third-party manufacturing and logistics challenges.
