ALS Life Sciences Portugal develops and manufactures rapid, reliable, and easy-to-use molecular diagnostic kits for the food & feed, environmental and clinical industries. Using PCR and LAMP technologies we provide kits for human diagnosis (CE-IVD), allergen detection, meat speciation and food & water pathogen screening (RUO). All kits provide a complete set of reagents for the qualitive detection of specific targets with high sensitivity.
DNA/ RNA - Oligo Synthesis
Oligonucletides are short, single-stranded synthetic DNA or RNA sequences that are used in a variety of molecular biology applications such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), DNA sequencing and molecular cloning. Our oligonucleotides are produced in ISO 8 cleanrooms according to the clients’ specifications and with quick turnaround times. All oligos are verified by ESI mass spectrometry prior to shipping ensuring the quality of each synthesis. We offer a wide range of modifications and different synthesis scales ranging from 0.05 µmol to 1 µmol for oligos of up to 100 bases.
