SGS DNA was founded in 1990 by Dr. Sune Kvist. The initial aim of the company was to provide scientists with high quality oligonucleotides, but already after a few years our focus shifted towards the In Vitro Diagnostic Industry. We early recognized the need for oligonucleotides with exceptional high purity, manufactured at the same level of safety and confidence as pharmaceuticals- and this is where we are today.
Since the start the company has grown gradually, making expansions and investments step by step. Today, we have some 50 employees and a production facility containing more than 20 clean rooms.
We are certified by both ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 and work according to cGMP/QSR. We are also registered at the US FDA as an ASR manufacturer. Today, we have many of the leading IVD companies as our customers. Our products are used in a variety of diagnostic and theranostic kits, which provides valuable information to physicians and patients all over the world.
All our products are custom made and manufactured according to your specifications. It is therefore important that you set the relevant specifications. One should not underestimate the importance of high quality and purity even for "simple" oligonucleotides such as primers. We know that there are no short cuts to high quality, and in your case, to optimal performance of your assay. Therefore, we recommend you to have the same level of quality of all the oligonucleotides that will coincide in your assay.
Our high quality oligonucleotides may be considered expensive, but it is really a cost-effective investment. The high purity of our products gives that only small amounts of each product are needed for optimal reaction and this in its turn results in a very low cost per reaction.
Our high quality products are a result of hard work, experience and ability to focus on details throughout the entire chain of production. We have spent a lot of time and effort to identify steps in the production which all are significant to the quality of the final product. Our production routines as well as our production environment are designated according to these conclusions; the most important ones are described under chain of production.
