Eurogentec will continue to synthesize BHQ® labeled qPCR probes for research institutes and clinical labs and now also for diagnostic and commercial applications.

Our customers will enjoy a simplified process with Eurogentec as their unique partner and provider.


The most popular and efficient quenchers

BHQs® are non-fluorescent quenchers that cover a large range of the full visible spectrum (from 480 nm to 730 nm). They were engineered to be true black quenchers with no emission of background signal.

MGB was a first case

In January 2021, we were one of the first to provide MGB Probes for all applications. Since then, users are no longer limited by any license, whatever their applications or location.

MGB is a minor groove binder added to the 3’end of a DNA probe to stabilize the duplex probe-target and reinforcing the specificity of the qPCR assay.
