After years of overseas testing, Certified Scientific Instruments is proud to present the H-8 Oligo Synthesizer to the American market.
Developed by the minds behind K&A Laboratories, the H-8 is milestone of closed-column oligo production. Efficiency and elegance are the hallmarks of this robust machine, designed with the highest purity, long oligo in mind.
This DNA/RNA/LNA Synthesizer boasts 8 columns, 12 amidite positions, and 6 reagent positions. Custom modifications are available to the consumer with variable needs. K&A Laboratories have successfully introduced 64 closed-columns on this system to the Japanese market, and the H-32 (32 closed-column positions) has gained enough popularity to warrant its own line.
The H-8 accepts either universal or standard CPG and operates a variable synthesis scale up to 10 µmol. Wobbles (mixed bases capability) are also possible as well as automated antisense oligo synthesis (also internal).
The cycle time ranges from 3 – 3 ½ minutes for full 8 column synthesis, and the compact, pressurized design allows for low reagent consumption.
Users of the machine will also find useful the self-contained trityl monitor for all columns, allowing for constant reads on synthesis efficacy and yield.
The onboard software is user-friendly and customizable. Protocols for varying needs are included, but the option to lengthen or diminish reaction times is available and easy to use.
A great addition to any synthesis laboratory, K&A’s H-8 will not disappoint.
