About Integrated Dna Technologies, Inc.

Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) is there when you need some genetic materials in a pinch. The company supplies oligonucleotides (oligos), which are essentially short strands of DNA and RNA, to research and development entities. Oligos are used to develop new drugs, create diagnostic tests for genetic and infectious diseases, and develop agricultural products. IDT makes custom strands using chemical DNA synthesis machines that can create the oligos within a day after the company has received an order. Founded in 1987, IDT has offices in the US, UK, Germany, Australia, Belgium, and Singapore; it distributes to researchers and other customers in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas, and the Middle East.


IDT ships about 44,000 oligos a day to more than 82,000 customers. It has research collaborations with The University of Iowa, City of Hope, and Tel Aviv University.

In addition to producing oligos, the company develops technologies for related applications including next-generation sequencing, CRISPR genome editing, and RNA interference. It also makes products used in diagnostic tests.

Geographic Reach

Headquartered in Coralville, Iowa, IDT has regional and branch locations in Australia, Germany, Japan, Korea, Spain, the US, and the UK. It has manufacturing facilities in Iowa and California; international plants are located in Belgium and Singapore. IDT serves clients around the globe.

Sales and Marketing

IDT sells its products and services through distributors in Africa, the Americas, the Asia/Pacific region, Europe, and the Middle East.


IDT works to increase its manufacturing capability and geographic reach through acquisitions. The company also partners with other biotechnology companies to develop and produce new DNA materials. Partners have included Quanta Biosciences, Glycon Pty Ltd., RainDance Technologies, and SGI-DNA.

In 2017, IDT's Singapore subsidiary acquired the oligo manufacturing operations of Australia's GeneWorks, broadening its capabilities in the Asia/Pacific region.
