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 – no special training needed.

Kilobaser is controllable from any internet-enabled device. To ensure your data security, you can also operate the Kilobaser without any internet connection using the touchpad supplied.

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

How it Works

JUST 3 EASY STEPS

enter sequence

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

insert chip & cartridge

Insert Kilobaser's innovative microfluidic chip & reagent cartridge for DNA synthesis.

Press start

Within two hours you get your ready-to-use DNA oligo!

Cartridges & Chips

just a cartridge, one chip and an argon gas supply

Our reagent cartridge holds reagents for 150 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.
