State-of-the-Art Manufacturing

Our multiple manufacturing sites in the US, Europe, and Asia let us provide you with products or components made under ISO 9001, ISO 13485, and GMP quality systems, or USDA guidelines. Accurate lot documentation and traceability are standard in our processes. We can synthesize novel molecular entities or particles de novo, prepare conjugates, custom-formulate complex buffers and solutions, or provide complete kits. We can custom-package at volumes of single microliters per vial or many liters per container. We can package by the picogram or kilogram, or by activity units using your specified assay. We work with you to define the ideal manufacturing specifications and tolerances to meet your needs. We also can special-label, or provide unlabeled vials, to match your requirements. For your diagnostics kit components, ask about the possibility of safety stock and embedding your forecasts in our manufacturing planning process.
