Molecular Beacon Design

Visual OMP designs both molecular beacons and allele specific molecular beacon pairs. Loop and stem size, melting temperature and free energy can be controlled to optimize selectivity and sensitivity of designed beacons.

Beacon stems are designed to not mishybridize to adjacent target sequences which may quench a fluorophore report and the stem can be optimized with a terminal G/C pair stem terminal option.
