To view information about dimers, pair dimers, hairpins, and false priming sites:

  • PrimerSelect – Do either of the following:

    • Select a primer pair and choose Report > Primer Self Dimers, Report > Primer Pair Dimers, and/or Report > Primer Hairpins


    • Use Edit > Work on Upper Primer or Edit > Work on Lower Primer to display the primer Workbench. Then use the tools on the left to display self-dimers, hairpins and/or false priming sites.

  • SeqBuilder Pro – This information is displayed automatically in the Primer Design view. To learn how to interpret this information, see the SeqBuilder Pro User Guide topic Primer Design view.
