Plasmid DNA Preparation Services

Standard (Per-Run) Plasmid Preparation

A per-run plasmid preparation service with order flexibility and the fastest starting turnaround time. Includes standard yield and purity testing, with additional service and analysis options available. Ideal for all plasmids, whether high-yield and stable or low-yield and toxic constructs.


Targeted Yield Plasmid Preparation

An amount-based bundled plasmid preparation solution with popular service and analysis options built-in. Includes free upgrade to transfection-grade DNA, sequencing and restriction digest analysis, and sterility verification. Ideal for high-copy, stable plasmids.


GLP Plasmid Preparation

GLP-compliant, endotoxin- and animal-free plasmid preparations are available and performed in compliance with FDA and EPA GLP regulations. This approach is ideal for cell-line development projects supporting FDA submissions and as internal controls for biomarker assays and kits. Animal-free plasmid preparations are also available for R&D efforts.


AAV Plasmid Preparation

Our proprietary AAV plasmid preparation service provides superior quality from midi- to giga-scale AAV vectors. This service provides includes pre-and post-preparation quality control (QC) steps that leverage our AAV-ITR Sanger sequencing capabilities for full sequence confirmation, and to ensure delivery of clones containing intact ITR regions. This service is ideal service for cell and gene therapy research utilizing recombinant AAV DNA.
