Using AEGIS: Molecular Beacons

Adding AEGIS nucleotides to the stems of molecular beacons prevents their being opened by adventitious DNA and RNA in a complex biological sample. This allows beacons to deliver signals in complex biological samples with significantly lower noise.


Firebird offers custom-synthesized beacons with a wide range of fluors and quenchers. Please inquire.
