Printing your DNA and RNA oligos becomes as easy as brewing a cup of coffee – less waiting, more time for science.
Your Kilobaser instrument automatically synthesizes ready-to-use DNA oligos and RNA oligos in less than 2 hours. Suitable for research and development applications.
To ensure your data security Kilobaser is controllable with or without any internet access.
The very affordable price of € 15,000 makes Kilobaser benchtop synthesizer highly accessible for any lab.
Enter your DNA/RNA sequence using the included touch screen, USB flash drive or your computer.
Insert Kilobaser's innovative microfluidic chip & reagent cartridge for DNA/RNA synthesis.
Within two hours you get your ready-to-use DNA/RNA oligo!
Our reagent cartridge holds reagents for 100-150 bases. Synthesize as many DNA oligos, DNA probes and RNA oligos as you want!
With our durable cartridges you can build up a stockpile.
Each synthesis starts with Kilobaser single-use microfluidic chip and ends with your dried DNA in a standard PCR-style 0.2 mL tube.
Accelerate your research and develop new flows. While current DNA services take days to weeks, you can do several DNA based experiments in a single day.
Kilobaser is as easy to use as it can get. Load the device with its single reagent cartridge, insert a new fluid chip and you’re ready to enter your desired DNA sequence.
Your DNA data stays strictly in-house. While we usually love surprise deliveries, it certainly feels better to know that you’ll have your DNA oligos ready in a couple of minutes when it’s critical.
Our CEO, Alex, shows you how easy it gets to make DNA yourself.

Kilobaser uses proven open source solutions like ChibiOS.
The product is a dry DNA of any desired length up to 50 bases.
Oligos can either be stored dry or resuspended in TE (Tris-EDTA) buffer. Tris-EDTA is a commonly used buffer solution for storing nucleic acids, especially DNA. The buffer keeps the DNA soluble in water and EDTA, a chelator of cations such as magnesium, protects DNA against enzymatic degradation.
Oligos that are stored at RT or 4°C in TE buffer are more stable than dry oligos. Oligos resuspended in water are the least stable. However, at 4°C, DNA is stable for at least one year under all these conditions. Additionally, it is recommended to store oligos in the dark.
Chip based means using a small synthetic chip instead of a reagent carrying tubing system, which wastes a big amount of chemicals during operation. This technique is one of the main reasons why Kilobaser saves costs on a large scale. On the one hand you need a lot less reagents and on the other hand you produce a lot less hazardous waste, manufacturing the same amount of DNA as conventional synthesizers.
