The Problem:

The most common cause of false positives in PCR is the formation of false amplicons due to primer mishybridization which is not detected by BLAST because it scores hits incorrectly using sequence similarity rather than using the proper rules for match and mismatch complementarity.   Additionally, many researchers do not have access to the computational capacity or storage required of modern genomic-based assay designs.


The Solution:

ThermoBLAST CE and ThermoBLAST solves the problem of primer and probe mishybridization by scanning against whole genome databases such as the human genome or microbiome using the speed of BLAST while applying the proper thermodynamic model to mishybridization and crosshybridization results.   The cloud integration of ThermoBLAST CE enables all researchers with the computational power to capture 50X as many thermodynamically stable and extensible hits as BLAST.
