GMP probes and primers are an extension of our PrimeTime® products. The GMP versions are manufactured under GMP conditions and are suitable for use in clinical and molecular diagnostic applications. Using the GMP Oligo Entry tool, you can design your probes and primers to contain the exact sequences and modifications you need. You can also specify purification and formulation options. With GMP probes and primers, you can alleviate unknown or undefined regulatory burdens involved with LDT and IVD applications to transition from research to commercialization more efficiently.
Freedom™ Dyes for affordable diagnostics
Among the many modifications available to you through the GMP Oligo Entry tool are Freedom Dyes. These fluorophores include no patent licensing restrictions from IDT or third-party companies. Freedom Dyes include FAM, HEX, JOE, MAX, TET, ROX, and TAMRA. Freedom ATTO™ dyes are particularly good substitutes for VIC®, LIZ®, and Alexa Fluor® dyes due to their strong absorption and sensitivity, enhanced photostability, and high fluorescence quantum yield.

Analyte-specific reagents (ASRs)
The US FDA defines ASRs as antibodies, both polyclonal and monoclonal, specific receptor proteins, ligands, nucleic acid sequences, and similar reagents which, through specific binding or chemical reaction with substances in a specimen, are intended for use in a diagnostic application for identification and quantification of an individual chemical substance or ligand in biological specimens. If your work requires such reagents, you can add ASR labels to your oligos using the “Services” menu in the GMP Oligo Entry tool.
