Validated DNA/RNA Extraction and Purification Services
In addition to isolating and purifying nucleic acids our laboratory and Regulatory Affairs staff will assist you in the validation process of our nucleic acids by preparing Standard Operating Procedures, Batch Records, Certificates of Analysis and Material Safety Data Sheets for each product. Site visits are welcomed to assure compliance with your needs.
Our company serves as a component manufacturer that currently is the preferred supplier of validated nucleic acids that serve as standards for inclusion in test kits for one of the largest biotech companies in the world. Lofstrand has been supplying various validated DNAs and RNAs to this company for nearly twenty years through a Just-in-Time (JIT) contract to all of their divisions, both domestic and foreign. We worked very closely with this organization in the validation, testing and certification of these products and wrote all of the SOP's, and developed certificates of analysis and MSDS forms for the products. Our facilities are regularly site visited by their staff.
