  • Oligonucleotide Ordering

    The IIHG Genomics Division provides custom oligonucleotides and synthetic DNA ordering supplied by a commercial vendor to University of Iowa investigators. The Division has negotiated a bulk-rate discount with the vendor, which is passed along to orders placed through the division’s on-line ordering system. 

    Log on to on-line ordering system

    • Access to the on-line ordering system requires that an investigator first set up an account with the IIHG Genomics Division.
    • To set up an account, please contact Jan Fuller at oligo-order@uiowa.edu.
    • The user then can logon to the on-line ordering system using their HawkID and password.
    • Once the user has logged on, the commercial oligonucleotide vendor is selected, and the user is ported to the vendor’s web site to shop and place their order.
    • IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU SUBMIT YOUR CART AND CHECK OUT COMPLETELY OR THE ORDER WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.
    • A confirmation e-mail will be sent. Please contact Jan Fuller at oligo-order@uiowa.edu if you do not receive an e-mail confirmation.

    Turnaround Time

    Requests for standard oligonucleotides (i.e., small scale synthesis, no purification or modifications) placed prior to noon are typically received the next day. Non-standard oligonucleotide orders and synthetic DNA orders typically require 2 to 5 working days to complete.
