Bio-Synthesis offers custom nucleic acid and oligonucleotide bioconjugation reagents as highly sensitive detection tools for customers to assaying oligonucleotide interaction or as therapeutic agents. Our nucleic acid and oligonucleotide conjugation services offer chemical modification of nucleic acid at specific sites within individual nucleotides or within oligonucleotides which allows labels such as fluorescence, chemiluminescence or chromogenic enzyme substrates, as well as small and macromolecules to be incorporated into DNA, RNA, BNA or PNA probes or immobilized on the surface to facilitate diagnostic and targeted drug delivery.
Bio-Synthesis gives you the best quality in nucleic acid chemistry industry by implementing a state-of-the art gene synthesis platform and expertise in providing high quality nucleic acid bioconjugate reagents. Nucleic acid and oligonucleotide modification and conjugates produced at Bio-Synthesis have substantial purity. Bio-Synthesis is committed to Total Quality Management (TQM) to assure customers' complete satisfaction. Each oligo-biopolymer conjugate is meticulously monitored during synthesis and controlled according to Bio-Synthesis' stringent quality assurance and quality control standards. The final product is identified by mass spectrum and purity is analyzed by high throughput gel electrophoresis or analytical HPLC or any other appropriate QC methods. QA (quality assurance) procedures are also followed independently to double guarantee the high quality of every delivered peptide. Bio-Synthesis's Total Quality Management System(TQM) has been successfully upgraded to fully comply with ISO 9001:2008 regulations.
Bio-Synthesis, the leader in providing oligonucleotide and gene synthesis since 1984, provides affordable custom nucleic acids, oligos or oligomimetic-biomolecule hybrid conjugates by providing our clients with comprehensive modifications and labeling to be used in biology, diagnostic, and drug discovery.
We offer enzymatic labeling of DNA as well as chemical modification of nucleic acid and oligonucleotides. These chemically modified oligonucleotides are extremely useful in fixing conformations by introducing cross-linkers in DNA, RNA, or nucleic acid-biomolecule complexes. Site-specific cross-linking permits the determination of the proximity of nucleotides or amino acids because the cross-linking woud not be possible at distances greater than the length of the spacer. Such reagents are usually attached to either the base or the sugar moiety in most cases.
For the last two decades, we have accumulated a portfolio of oligonucleotide bioconjugate. Contact our National Customer Service Center at 800.220.0627 or contact us online with your detailed project descriptions, in most case, we can accommodate your bioconjugation needs!
Chemistry: Using preactivated small molecule and biomolecule with chemical reactive groups such as amine, thiol, carboxylate, hydroxyl, aldehyde and ketone, active hydrogen, photo-chemical and ccloadition reactions and cross link via zero-length , homobifunctional, heterobiofunctional or multifunctioanl cross-linking chemistries, denrimer and dendrons, cleavable regent system.
Specification: After standard desalting, or purification, a small percent of heterogeneous products containing single or multi-site conjugate per molecule may exist.
Procedure: All custom synthesis of biomolecule, modification or bioconjugation services are manufactured under strict quality control processes. Analytical HPLC and MS analyses are performed in every development cycle. Final target conjugates must first be isolated from excess or unreacted reagent. In many cases, simple dialysis may suffice to remove unreacted reagent from the reaction solution. Depending on the project scope, size-exclusion chromatography (SEC), HPLC, may also be used to either remove excess reagent or isolate and characterized the cross-linked product. Cross-linked target molecule may then be further characterized by biochemical or biophysical techniques. Once the product has been purified, it may be subject to many different types of studies including spectroscopic (MALDI-TOF, ESI, LC-MS Fluorescence), electrophoresis, immunochemical biochemical, enzymatical analysis. QC (quality control) and QA (quality assurance) procedures are also followed independently to offer you double guarantee for the highest quality possible of every delivered conjugates. Moreover, our dedicated technical account managers will guide your project through every step of the process and constantly keep you informed of the latest project progress.
Delivery Specifications: The typical delivery consists of lyophilized sample in individual fully labeled vials. The shipment also contains COA, MS, HPLC and/or other analytical data. Additional analytical data is also available upon request.

The more our chemists understand your project needs, the more accurate feedback we will be able to provide you. Providing us with your project details will enable us to recommend the best reagents to use for your own project. The most useful and readily available tools for bioconjugation projects are cross-linking reagents. A large number of cross-linkers, also known as bifunctional reagents, have been developed. There are several ways to classify the cross-linkers, such as the type of reactive group, hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity, and the length of the spacer between reactive groups. Other factors to consider are whether the two reactive groups are the same or different (for example, heterobifunctional or homobifunctional reagents), whether the spacer is cleavable, and whether the reagents are membrane permeable or impermeable. The most accessible and abundant reactive groups in proteins are the ϵ-amino groups of lysine. Therefore, a large number of the most common cross-linkers are amino selective reagents, such as imidoesters, sulfo-N-hydroxysuccinimide esters, and N-hydroxysuccinimide esters. Due to the high reactivity of the thiol group with N-ethylmaleimide, iodoacetate and a-halocarbonyl compounds, new cross-linkers have been developed that contain maleimide and a-carbonyl moieties. Usually, N-alkylmaleimides are more stable than their N-aryl counterparts.
In addition to the reactive groups on the cross-linkers, a wide variety of connectors and spacer arms have also been developed. The nature of the spacer arm, and also the length, play an important role in the functionality. Longer spacer arms are generally more effective when coupling large proteins or those with sterically protected reactive side-chains. Other important considerations are the hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, and the conformational flexibility. Long aliphatic chains generally fold on themselves when in an aqueous environment, which makes the actual distance spanned by such linker arms less than expected. Instead, spacers that contain more rigid structures (for example, aromatic groups or cycloalkanes) should be used. These structures, however, tend to be very hydrophobic which could significantly decrease the solubility of the modified molecules or even modify some of their properties. In such cases, it is recommended to choose a spacer that contains an alkylether (PEO) chain. Bio-Synthesis offers several cross-linkers with PEO chains, such as thiol-binding homobifunctional reagents, heterobifunctional based, and their derivatives.
