Oligo Order Service at Garvan Molecular Genetics

Only for Garvan and VCCRI researchers we offer a centralized Oligo Order Service for Oligos from  IDT, Sigma-Aldrich, or GeneWorks. Please use the Oligo Order Form, adhering to the following instructions:

    • The picture below shows you what to select in the Oligo Order Form if you wish to make a standard Oligo order.
    • Please delete any 5' or 3' in the sequence of the oligo before you add it to the excel sheet.
    • Please use a unique name for each Oligo (Oligo manufacturers will not accept the same name for two Oligos in one order).
    • There is a standard charge per Oligo, which we will deduct from your cost code. The standard charge includes delivery fee. 
    • If you order over 20 Oligos or modifications we calculate your individual costs.
    • Ordering occurs each working day
    • If you need modifications or cleanups (HPLC or PAGE) please label the oligo clearly with the modification added to the left or right side, for example \5BIO\GTCCTATCTGATCTGTGCAGT or GTCCTATCTGATCTGTGCAGT\3PHOS\
