For researchers who need long custom DNA constructs for pharmaceutical development (e.g. viral genomes) or for metabolic engineering, pathway engineering, or synthetic biology, Life Technologies offers a fast, reliable, and economic solution—our proprietary and completely in-house GeneArt® DNA synthesis and assembly services.

Solutions from gene fragments to genomes

  • High-throughput  gene synthesis with a capacity of 7 Mbp per month (fast and reliable production of DNA pieces for assembly)
  • Expert design and assembly technologies and process expertise for the assembly of constructs from 10 kb to several hundred kilobases, with timelines starting from 25 business days
  • Robust technologies to build DNA constructs with highest complexity
  • Sanger sequencing and next-generation sequencing offer flexible solutions for sequence verification and final QC
  • Proven track record of reliable and timely production for long and complex constructs, with dozens of constructs built each year
  • Proprietary technologies to build high-quality gene fragments up to 3 kb, and assembly kits that enable do-it-yourself construction and assembly
