Terms & Conditions


We have taken all reasonable efforts to ensure that the results produced by SNPCheck are accurate and reliable. All variant data and associated annotations are reproduced from NCBI dbSNP, 1000 Genomes Project and the Exome Sequencing Project and may not always be correct. Certus Technology and EMQN are not responsible for the content of dbSNP, 1000 Genomes Project and Exome Sequencing Project datasets and makes no judgements or computations about the validity of variant data or potential effects on the diagnostic process which SNPCheck presents. SNPCheck is a tool to simplify the process of checking primers for the presence of known SNPs, but users must use due diligence to ensure the validity of these results. We make no warranty, express or implied, as to SNPCheck's accuracy nor that the information is fit for a particular purpose, and will not be held responsible for any consequences arising out of any inaccuracies or omissions. Individuals, organisations and companies who use SNPCheck do so on the understanding that no liability whatsoever either direct or indirect shall rest upon Certus Technology and EMQN or any of their employees or agents for the effects of any product, process or method that may be produced or adopted by any part, notwithstanding that the formulation of such product, process or method may be based upon information here provided.

  • A maximum of 10 simultaneous users are allowed to login on any SNPCheck account at one time.
  • Users can submit at most 500 primer pairs per batch.
  • Users have a limit of 6000 primer pair checks per month. We will contact you if you exceed this.
  • Users must not use SNPCheck, its facilities or results inappropriately or beyond their intended purpose and should be aware that any such use that adversely impacts upon Certus Technology, EMQN and/or other SNPCheck users, and any use of SNPCheck beyond the acceptable uses described here, may result in suspension of their accounts.
