Sterling Supports

All Glen Research CPG supports use the standard long chain alkylamino (lcaa) linker but differ in the glass pore size, 500Å, 1000Å or 2000Å. The 500Å support is appropriate for shorter sequences, while the 1000Å supports perform better in the synthesis of longer (>30-mer) DNA sequences. The 2000Å support is best for very long (>150-mer) oligonucleotides. We have instituted an additional QC test for supports to show the length of oligo that can be prepared before a drop-off in coupling due to steric effects begins to occur. The drop-off point is recorded in the Certificate of Analysis. All Glen Research supports are fully end-capped to ensure that the CPG surface is totally inert, thereby avoiding the introduction of impurity sequences containing deletions at the 3'-terminus.

Glen Research CE (β-cyanoethyl) Phosphoramidites are produced and packaged to ensure the highest performance on DNA synthesizers. Every Glen Research product is accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis and HPLC trace, showing the results of our QC testing.

All solvents and reagents are prepared to our exacting specifications to ensure the highest synthesis efficiency and are passed through a 0.2 micron filter during packaging to eliminate particulate contamination. Glen Research uses freshly sublimed 1H-tetrazole for premium performance on oligonucleotide synthesizers.
