Offering Fast Services

Commercial organizations seeking to outsource early-stage product development or production are an important component of our business efforts. We position our laboratories to execute such work under Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) guidelines where required.
Our rapid turnaround time is a crucial component of our service philosophy, putting us ahead of our competitors. Typically, we ship labeled probes in less than 24 hours, synthetic oligonucleotides in less than five days, and plasmid DNA in approximately one week.

Our Location

Lofstrand Labs Limited originally occupied a small laboratory on Lofstrand Lane in Rockville, MD. As our business grew, we moved our laboratory to its present location in Gaithersburg.
