Notice: August 2022

As of 7/1/2022, IDT has implemented a temporary shipping surcharge fee to all orders to help cover increased fuel costs.  The surcharge fee is $3.50 per order, unless expedited, same day service is requested.  Customers that order expedited Same-day oligos will receive an additional charge of $29.  If you do not wish to pay the additional shipping charge, please remove the expedited Same-day oligo service request from your order before placing the order in the IDT portal.


Create custom primers and probes for oligo and siRNA synthesis with excellent prices negotiated for our clients through Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT). All custom oligo orders placed through the DNA Services Core-IDT ordering portal receive special discounted pricing and do not incur any standard shipping fees. Discounted pricing and no standard shipping fee are also available for other products listed on the IDT website and ordered through the DNA Services Core. IDT orders will be shipped directly to the address specified by individual IDT account holders. 

Note: OHSU discount pricing is only available with oligo orders placed through iLab. We offer very competitive fees for various scales of starting material, and processing options are available.
