Oligo synthesis service discontinued

The Penn State Genomics Core no longer provides oligonucleotide synthesis as a service. However, IDT and Penn State have established an internet ordering portal for researchers at University Park that automatically discounts your orders and provides free shipping on all non-expedited orders.

To use the portal you will need to register a new account by going to and clicking on the “Set Up New Account” button. Please create a UserID and password that is different from the one you use for your direct orders with IDT. Also, it is important that you remember to go through this URL in the future to get the automatic discounts and free shipping.

Payment for IDT purchases will be done using your credit cards, as you are doing currently. 

Pick up your orders at W-102 Millennium Science Complex. The contact for your IDT oligos at this location is Laura Drew,  7-6729.
