UTHealth NanoChemistry Service Center

Overview of Services

   

    The NanoChemistry Service Center provides specialty oligonucleotides, coupling chemistry, and associated bioinformatics analysis. We provide aptamers with monothioate, dithioate, and other substitutions, including X-Aptamers with drug-like side chains.
    In addition, we provide aptamer and X-aptamer selection services and bioinformatics analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) arising from X-aptamer selection projects or other pseudo-random DNA/RNA projects. A wide variety of dyes, quenchers, chelators and conjugation reagents can be incorporated oligos.

 

NEW - We now offer large-scale, high-resolution 3D services, for both multi-color prototypes and production models, with resolution as high as 14 microns.

 

THINGS WE DON'T DO:
- Synthesized standard DNA oligonucleotides which contain only the standard 4 DNA bases without modifications;
- Large scale (~50-100 umole) synthesis.

(Note: There are ample commercial entities with astoundingly low prices for normal DNA/RNA synthesis, or large scale synthesis, such as Midland Certified, IDT, Oligo Factory).
