Spacer 


The addition of a C3 spacers (3 hydrocarbons) to the 3´-end of an oligonucleotide can prevent e.g. its elongation during a PCR without influencing its annealing properties in any meaningful way. Such a modification is therefore well suited for hybridization probes used in a PCR reaction.

biomers.net offers different terminal and internal spacers:

  • Spacer C3
  • Spacer C6
  • Spacer C12
  • Spacer9
  • Spacer12
  • Spacer18
  • dSpacer
