We consider the following mixed form for the semidiscretization by hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin methods (HDG) of problems (1a), (1b), and (1c).

In our assay, this alternative is attractive because (a) the modification (5' phosphate residue) is not in the hybridizable strand, and (b) the production of single strand is very efficient; moreover, this approach can be applied to multiplex PCR.
The discrepancy between the weight of the telomere repeats and the hybridizable probe number (which corresponded to rlu) was negligible when the longer telomere repeats were assayed using longer telomere repeat DNAs.
