The UMGC has a partnership with Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) for the purpose of providing UMN researchers with high quality oligonucleotide synthesis. Service options include DNA and RNA synthesis in a range of scales from 10 nmole to 10 umole, gBlock Gene Synthesis and Custom Genes, and a variety of other products available through our IDT Portal on the ONLINE ORDERING SYSTEM.
In addition to products, the IDT Portal also gives access to the spec. sheets and QC information for each of your orders, as well as IDT’s oligonucleotide knowledge base.

As an example, an order for a simple oligonucleotide order is as follows, however, other products will have different ordering procedures.
You will receive a confirmation email after your order has been approved by the UMGC and IDT. The email will generally be sent the next business day following your order date (usually in the morning).
You will receive an email after your entire order is ready for pick-up from the location noted on your order.
Each order will be packaged in a shipping envelope with your name on the envelope; the oligo(s) and paper spec. sheet(s) are included in the envelope.
All of IDT’s products are available except for the Oligo Cards & Miscellaneous category.
Each of IDT’s products has a brief overview, which can be found by going to the product’s individual page, located under the Products tab. IDT also has an extensive FAQ and other resources under the Support tab. For more specific information, you can contact IDT directly by going to the Contact page under the Support tab.
The recommended web browsers to use are Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Google Chrome is not recommended as the Portal has had complications and does not work correctly on Chrome.
Your Order History is visible on the IDT Portal. To view a previous order made on the Portal:
Here you can view the order contents, download spec. sheets, and download the QC documents for any of orders you have placed on the Portal.
If you have recently placed an order on the Portal, then it is likely that you did not completely log out of the ONLINE ORDERING SYSTEM, and so your new order did not generate an Internal Order Number. To correct this, you will need to log out of the ONLINE ORDERING SYSTEM completely, and then log in again. Any items that have been added to your cart will be saved. If this is not the case, then please contact us via email at email@example.com, or phone, 612-624-3177, so we can help resolve the issue.
Yes, there is primer design software available through the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI): Primer3. IDT also has primer design software on their website, PrimerQuest, which is also available on the IDT Portal under the Tools menu.
IDT has an online calculator that can be used for primer dilution.
