Will IDT synthesize aptamers for me?

Yes. If you can provide the aptamer sequence(s), you can order directly from the IDT website. To order online choose “Main Menu” from the “Order” drop-down menu. Click on “Custom DNA Oligos,” or if your sequence contains RNA bases, “Custom RNA Oligos.” Enter your desired scale, sequence, and purification.

If you are ordering aptamers with a fixed sequence, IDT recommends HPLC or PAGE purification. For aptamer libraries containing random bases, IDT recommends standard desalt.
