Integrated DNA Technologies to Use Li-Cor Biosciences' Infrared Dyes in Oligo Production

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Custom nucleotide developer Integrated DNA Technologies has struck an agreement with Li-Cor Biosciences that will allow it to manufacture oligos for sale worldwide using Li-Cor’s infrared dyes.
 
Under the agreement, Coralville, Iowa-based IDT has gained the right to use Li-Cor’s IRDye 700, IRDye 800, and IRDye 800CW. These dyes are designed to be alternatives to fluorophore labeling and to extend sequence read-length and base accuracy for DNA sequencing.
 
Li-Cor stopped manufacturing its custom IRDye labeled oligos in November of 2008, and it now is recommending IDT to supply custom oligos with these infrared dyes, IDT said.
