Palo Alto, California -- June 24, 2013, PREMIER Biosoft, as a part of its contract software development services, has delivered OligoEvaluator™ to Sigma Life Science. Sigma Life Science is part of Sigma-Aldrich, a leading Life Science and High Technology company whose biochemical, organic chemical products, kits and services are used in scientific research. The Company operates in 35 countries, has nearly 9,000 employees, and serves 1.3 million customers.
OligoEvaluator analyzes secondary structures for any given DNA or RNA sequence and provides information such as melting temperature, GC percentage, length and molecular weight. Degenerate and Inosine nucleosides whose properties are otherwise hard to predict are also supported. Physico-chemical properties are further calculated for a sequence by tagging it to Sigma's rich list of 5', 3' and internal modifications. The tool calculates the volume for resuspending an oligo in water or buffer and stock concentrations needed to achieve a specified volume and concentration through dilutions.
"We wanted to launch a new oligonucleotide calculator tool with a user friendly and robust interface," said Tom Russell, Global Product Manager at Sigma Life Science. "Just as with OligoArchitect™, we relied on PREMIER Biosoft to be our informatics partner because of the company’s expertise and excellent service."
"We were given the job of delivering best-in-class software amidst several tools already available on the market. Our vast experience in genomics applications and extensive product line up helped us to formulate the algorithms of OligoEvaluator", said Arun Apte, CEO, PREMIER Biosoft.
