With ULTRAhyb™-Oligo

ULTRAhyb™-Oligo

Probe Type Final Concentration in Hybridization Buffer
Radiolabeled DNA oligonucleotide 106 cpm/ml


Recommended Oligonucleotide Probe Characteristics:

Characteristic Recommendation
Length 26-45
Tm value* 78-90¨C
GC content 47-62%
Specific activity 5 x 106 cpm/pmol
Labeling method 5' end labeling with [gamma-32P] ATP
*DNA oligonucleotides with a Tm outside of the range listed may require a different hybridization temperature that would have to be determined empirically.

With Most Other Hybridization Solutions:

Probe Type Final Concentration in Hybridization Buffer
Radiolabeled RNA and DNA* probes 1 x 106 to 5 x 106 cpm/ml
Nonisotopic RNA or DNA* probes 0.1 nM
Oligonucleotide probes** 1 x 106 to 5 x 106 cpm/ml
*Be sure to denature dsDNA probes prior to hybridization.
**Note: Not all hybridization solutions are compatible with oligonucleotide probes.
