Custom Oligos for Commercial Use

We offer custom DNA Primers, qPCR Probes, and Next-Gen Sequencing Oligos for Life Science Research Tools, Molecular Diagnostics, and Laboratory Developed Tests. We can also perform component or complete kit manufacturing, including custom formulations, packaging, and private labeling. Learn about our manufacturing capabilities or request a consultation to determine which type of product best fits your needs.

Quality Assurance

At the foundation of our manufacturing processes is a robust Quality Management System (QMS), which drives compliance to our following Quality Registrations:

  • ISO 9001:2015 for manufacturing research-grade oligonucleotides
  • ISO 13485:2016 for manufacturing diagnostic-grade oligonucleotides
  • ISO 14001:2015 for effective environmental management

This quality culture is integrated into all aspects of our business. Key components of our QMS include: 

  • Certificates of analysis
  • Document control
  • Change notification
  • Vendor management
  • Business agreements
  • Corrective and preventive actions

Each component drives quality assurance, and for verification, we routinely host rigorous registrar, internal, and customer audits.

Project Expertise

From early-stage research through commercial launch, we provide project expertise to ensure your success.

Manufacturing Overview

Project Management

We believe that accountability, predictability, responsiveness, and flexibility are the keys to project success and customer satisfaction. A project management professional will work with you from the start of the project through order fulfillment.

Product Development Support

When your project requires innovative approaches to novel oligonucleotide constructs or formulations, our scientists are available for collaboration in developing:

  • Conjugates and complex dye labeling
  • Customized purification and analytical methods
  • Optimized ready-mixes and customized PCR/amplification enzyme formulations
  • Product and process optimization to maximize manufacturability
  • Component or kit packaging design and private labeling

Process Development

Process development is a critical step in creating a robust and economical manufacturing process. To set process specifications, we:

  • Identify critical control parameters and risks
  • Develop consistent and reproducible processes
  • Create specifications and manufacturing documents
  • Provide small lots for stability testing, design verification, and design validation
  • Manufacture the necessary pilot batches to achieve production scale

We can develop unique methods or adopt your existing protocols to meet your specifications. Our expertise in methods transfer ensures your proven analytical procedures are integrated into our quality systems. Our multi-million dollar investment in state-of-the-art instrumentation and our experienced team of scientists are the foundation for our development and qualification process.

Reliable Manufacturing

We have the personnel, infrastructure, equipment, and facilities to handle all of your manufacturing requirements.

Flexible Manufacturing

Our robust manufacturing processes are designed with our customers in mind. Our flexibility in manufacturing results from our technical expertise and core manufacturing capabilities, including:

  • Flexible automation
  • Range of production scales
  • Stringent quality control
  • Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)

We understand that consistency is critical to manufacturing success. Our engineers design and maintain proprietary synthesis platforms, processing equipment and facilities. Instruments are qualified and an extensive preventive and predictive maintenance program ensures optimal performance. Utilizing our in-process controls and LIMS to capture information, process adjustments can be made in real time. Our manufacturing expertise makes us the partner of choice for designing and creating solutions for all your production needs.

Custom Formulations & Packaging

We can formulate the most complex components with precision and accuracy. We have the ability to:

  • Formulate liquids and dry powders on a small to large scale
  • Accommodate a variety of packaging configurations including microtiter plates, tubes and bottles
  • Package a single component or an entire kit to your specifications
  • Private label your product

Support Services

Our commitment to our partners is evident in all aspects of our business. We routinely tailor programs to meet customer requirements including:

  • Functional testing of your product
  • Regulatory compliance consulting
  • Audits of any of our facilities
  • Forecasting and capacity planning
  • Quarterly business reviews
  • Key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Inventory management services
  • Global warehousing and distribution
