MiraiBio introduced FlexMAP bead sets, which contain 24-base oligonucleotides (“anti-tags”) already attached. The attached anti-tags are isothermal, optimized to reduce cross hybridization and designed to minimize secondary structure stability. The beads have a specific dye combination, giving every set a color for fast identification and simple multiplexing.
