Oligo Ordering

The BMB Research Storeroom (BMBStores) now offers DNA/RNA synthesis ordering for your research needs, at Michigan State University. Orders placed through BMBStores will be invoiced directly to your MSU Account number and picked up at BMBStores. Orders for oligos, probes, miRNA and siRNA from Applied Biosystems (ABI), Integrated DNA Technology (IDT) or Sigma will be processed according to methods described below.

Applied Biosystems

  1. Create custom Taqman Primers/Probes in a word processing program, following the requirements in the example;
  2. Save as .txt file.
  3. Send file as an email attachment to bmbstores@msu.edu
  4. Complete a Non-Stock / Open Order Form (PDF) entering quantity desired and "Custum Taqman" in the description, with no catalog number.
  5. For order verification, please attach a copy of the .txt file. A completed Open Order Form with attachment, can be faxed (354-9914) or dropped off at BMBStores.
  6. You will be notified when your order has arrived at BMBStores.

Integrated DNA Technologies

  1. Log in or set-up an IDT account.
  2. It is recommended that each laboratory (Principal Investigator) establish one account for all laboratory researchers: one user name and password.
  3. A valid MSU Account no. (8 characters), and if necessary subaccount no. will be required in order to submit oligo requests.
  4. For best oligo pricing and free shipping through BMBStores, click on Custom DNA Oligos (under Custom Synthesis) on Products.
  5. You will be notified when your order has arrived at BMBStores.

Sigma-Aldrich

Sigma-Aldrich products that can be ordered here include:

  • Same Day Oligos
  • SYBR green primers - KiCqStart Pre-designed Primer Pairs
  • Probes - Dual Labeled Fluorescent
  • siRNA - custom and pre-designed

Instruction:

  1. It is recommended that each laboratory (Principal Investigator) use one account for all laboratory researchers. However, Sigma has set up new accounts in the BMBStores Sigma Portal for many existing MSU researchers who have ordered oligos from Sigma.
  2. Please check the attached spreadsheet to determine if a new account has been created for your lab - please be certain you are using the appropriate user name for your laboratory. Column D (in yellow) contains the new user name for these established accounts; do not use information in Column E. As the password, use "sigma1". This password can be changed once you are logged in to the oligo ordering site through the BMBStores Sigma Portal, on the "My Profile" tab.
  3. Go to the Sigma portal.
  4. To create a new account click on the "Register" link after entering the Portal. The registration code to use is USA-MICHSTATE. Your new user profile becomes active 24-48 hours after creating it.
  5. For best oligo pricing and S&H costs, click on Products, then Order Oligos & Peptides (under Custom Product); choose DNA Oligos.
  6. Once the sequence(s) and oligo name(s) are added, View Cart (upper right corner of web page) to confirm billing information and "Submit Cart" to place the oligo order with Sigma.
  7. A valid MSU Account no. (8 characters), and if necessary subaccount no., will be required in order to submit oligo request.
