To achieve the fastest possible shipping time, items that do not meet IDT's purity and yield specifications after the first assembly attempt will be cancelled at no charge. No formal cancellation notice will be sent for these items. However, cancellations will be noted on the item specification sheet, which can be accessed using the Synthetic Biology Order Status Checker. Plates with less than 24 genes will incur an additional fee applied at checkout.

Product data

Sequence verification

All inserts for Rapid Genes are sequence-verified by NGS. Upon delivery of the plasmids, an NGS-sequencing report, plasmid map, and FASTA file are all available to you in your online IDT account.

Frequently asked questions


Sequence Information is secure and confidential at IDT. Please see our Confidentiality Statement for more information. All online ordering steps, including sequence entry and your choice of parameters, are also secure and protected.

We screen the sequence of every gene, gene fragment, and Megamer™ ssDNA fragment order we receive to (1) identify any regulated and other potentially dangerous pathogen sequences, and (2) verify that IDT’s gene customers are legitimate scientists engaged in beneficial research.

IDT is among the five founding members of the International Gene Synthesis Consortium (IGSC) and helped to create the IGSC’s Harmonized Screening Protocol. The Harmonized Screening Protocol describes the gene sequence and customer screening practices that IGSC member companies employ to prevent the misuse of synthetic genes. IDT takes the steps set out in the Harmonized Screening Protocol to screen the sequences of ordered genes and the prospective customers who submit those orders.

For more information about the IGSC and the Harmonized Screening Protocol, please visit the website at


In October 2010, the United States government issued final Screening Framework Guidance for Providers of Synthetic Double-Stranded DNA, describing how commercial providers of synthetic genes should perform gene sequence and customer screening. IDT and the other IGSC member companies supported the adoption of the Screening Framework Guidance, and IDT follows that Guidance in its application of the Harmonized Screening Protocol.
