In the last two years OligoCo has developed proprietary technologies for making long synthetic oligonucleotides--up to 150-mers, even 200-mers--with independently verified average error rates of 1 in 1500 bases. We did this development work inside Blue Heron Biotechnology, where for ten years our oligo methods fed the assembly of tens of millions of bases of synthetic DNA. When Blue Heron sold its gene synthesis assets in August 2010, the oligo technology became the core of the new company now called OligoCo.
Lengths: Up to 200 mers
Coupling efficiency: 99.5%+
Errors: 0.5-0.7errors/kilobase (all lengths)
Scale: 8-12 nmole
OligoCo no longer provides a third-party gene synthesis service. But we do expect to sell high-quality long oligos to groups working in synthetic biology, sequencing, diagnostics, biofuels and agribusiness, to name a few. Not every oligo application has the same needs as gene synthesis. But OligoCo’s low error-rate synthetic oligos are now available to these and other markets at competitive prices.
