About 6 months ago when I was in another synthesis slump,
I did this and I found both ends of a clone to be good 35%
of the time. This makes sense to me since (theoretically)
my forward 56mer should have 56% full length ends and my
43mer 64%. Of course things change in 6 months and I am
planning on trying this again.
To the other poster, I would love to cartridge purify these
oligos but I am doing hundreds and it is cost prohibitive.
We do an overnight digest with the Sfi because we've found that
anything less than 8 hours is insufficient and gives us poor
Thanks again, Paul
