How do I place a DNA tube bulk order?
If you are ordering a large quantity of tubes (up to 200), you can place your order using a template that you download, complete, then upload to the Life Technologies website. To complete the form, follow these steps:
- Click Download tube template. Save the template to your computer.
- Open the template in Microsoft Excel. The Instructions tab details how to fill out the template and provides ordering codes. Use the Tube Order tab to enter the oligo order.
- Enter the mandatory fields in the spreadsheet (Oligo sequence, Oligo name, Researcher Name, Synthesis scale, and Purification) on the Tube template tab. Use the codes provided on the Instructions tab.
- Enter modifications to the desired sequence. Leave the field blank if not applicable. Again, use the codes provided under the Instructions tab.
- Enter special handling options. These are the same as the Special Handling Options in the basic DNA tube order. (Note: When selecting multiple special handling options, do not leave spaces between the codes.)
- With the Tube Order tab selected, save the file as a comma delimited (.csv) or tab delimited (.txt) file using the Microsoft Excel File>Save As command.
