GLP-Compliant Confirmatory Sequencing

The Gold Standard For Non-Clinical Safety Studies.

Sequence confirmation is critical in preclinical and production pipelines, especially if you plan for a FDA and/or EPA submission. GLP-compliant sequencing offers an added layer of documentation, quality control, and process control to support regulated and non-regulated industries confirm their sequences with confidence. It combines Sanger sequencing, which is already the gold standard for sequence confirmation with a 99.9999% accuracy rate, with the quality standards of a preclinical lab. Our GLP-compliant sequencing services include:

  • Quality control of incoming DNA
  • Design and synthesis of required primers
  • Double strand sequence confirmation (2fold or 4fold coverage) by primer walking or by PCR amplification and sequencing
  • Guaranteed accuracy of final data: 2fold coverage: > 99.999% and 4fold coverage: > 99.99999%
  • Nucleic acid extraction, reverse transcriptase or DNA cloning are available on demand.
