KILOBASER DNA SYNTHESIZER

EUR 15.000,00 USD 18,000.00

KILOBASER EMPOWERS ANY LAB PROFESSIONAL TO CREATE DNA

Printing your DNA oligos becomes as easy as brewing a nice cup of coffee – less waiting, more time for science.

Your Kilobaser instrument automatically synthesizes ready-to-use DNA oligos in less than 2 hours. Suitable as PCR primers or for any other application.

Kilobaser is a benchtop DNA synthesizer

It‘s designed to be operated by anyone, there‘s no special training needed.

Connect to the benchtop DNA synthesizer using any mobile or desktop device or not at all. To protect your data we ensured Kilobaser can be operated without the internet connection.

The very affordable price of € 15,000 makes the Kilobaser instrument highly accessible for any lab.

How it Works

JUST 3 EASY STEPS

enter your sequence

Enter your DNA sequence using the touch screen, USB flash drive or your computer.

insert fluidic chip

Insert a single-use fluidic chip and a standard PCR-style 0.2mL tube.

DNA is ready

A typical PCR primer is ready to use in less than 2 hours.

Cartridges & Chips

just a cartridge, one chip and an argon gas supply

Our reagent cartridge holds reagents for 200 DNA bases. It can be used for up to 2 weeks after activation.

Each synthesis starts with our single-use Kilobaser microfluidic chip and ends with your DNA in a standard PCR-style 0.2 mL tube.

Benefits

Synthesize whenever you want. Know exactly when your DNA is ready to use.
Do several iterations in a single day. All your data stays in-house.

ACCELERATION

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.

CONVENIENCE

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.

SECURITY

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.

Good to know

Is the product dried? And how long are oligos stable at room temperature?

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.

What is chip-based DNA synthesis? Does Kilobaser use it?

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.
