One of the three founders of Genset, Dr. Luc d'Auriol, had started his
own venture just outside of Philadelphia called DNAgency. Dr d'Auriol
was responsible for setting up Genset's oligonucleotide synthsis
system and essentially ran it until the end of last year. I know
DNAgency is now operational and they are going to install an e-mail
ordering system very soon. For now, however, they are offering quality
great turnaround time and, of course, highest quality oligos and
modified derivatives. I am a friend of Dr. d'Auriol's but I have no
stake in the company. You've got nothing to loose. Try it, give him a
call. I'm sure you'll be pleased.
