How can I check my PCR primers using the OligoAnalyzer™ program to ensure there are no significant primer design issues?
Look for PCR primers that conform to the following guidelines (use our free online OligoAnalyzer Tool for this purpose):
The GC content should be between 35−80% or equivalent to the product being amplified.
The delta G value of any self-dimers, hairpins, and heterodimers should be weaker (more positive) than −9.0 kcal/mol. Positive numbers indicate that the actual secondary structure shown will not form at all.
Avoid 3' complementarity between the two primers to prevent primer dimers.
The IDT OligoAnalyzer program can be used to assess these different criteria for a proposed oligo.
