The main purpose of AmplifX is to seek in a collection of primers, such as any molecular biologist get in his refrigerators, those which can be use to amplify a fragment into a target sequence, for example, and particularly, to design strategies to screen recombinant clones by PCR.

Some informations are associated with each primer, some automatically computed by AmplifX (like TM, Quality, length) and other given by the user (name, comments, etc) This allows general aspects of primer management (sequences and real tubes). AmplifX can also design new primers.

What's New

Version 1.7.0:
  • Now a Cocoa application (compatible with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Retina displays)
  • Very big sequences support (> 1 million nucleotides)
  • Huge improvment in speed for almost all time consuming operations: sequence and primer list loading, match searches, primer design
  • The program is now distributed as a multilingual bundle (still only in english and french more...


OS X 10.6 or later

Great application. Simple and efficient way to visualize how PCR primers match a sequence.
Very nice to see the applications is still supported and updated after all these years.

Version 1.6.1

it'd be nice to see the app signed for GateKeeper though, but a simple Ctrl-Click to open from the contextual menu allows you to bypass this limitation.

Gorgeous program. There are plenty of webpages devoted to finding primers as well, but it's great to have this readily available on my computer at any time.

Nice to see such a fine scientific application in the Mac sphere. Hopefully it is a nice effect of the Unix based os X, more developers wants Macs...


Dont know anything about that advanced impressing sounding stuff it may fix. But nice seeing real scientific apps coming along.
