For analyzing and comparing multiple primer sequences simultaneously.
Write or paste your primer sequences to the input field (upper window). The analyzer accepts text and table format (can be copied from an Excel file, for example). Note: This analyzer requires at least 2 primer sequences in the input field. For single primers (determination of primer Tm) you can choose the Tm calculator for PCR.
The results will appear instantly in the output fields (lower windows), and update automatically if you make changes to the sequences. The analyzer will give the following results:
*The calculated Tm for a given primer can vary significantly between different calculation methods. This Tm calculator uses a modified nearest-neighbor method based on the method described by Breslauer et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. 83, 3746-50 (1986).
**The analyzer reports possible primer-dimers based on the detection parameters given below the sequence input window. The dimer information is intended to be used as a preliminary guide when selecting suitable primer combinations. It is not conclusive data. In the actual amplification reaction the primer-dimer formation can vary depending on the PCR conditions.
