Project Management

LGC Biosearch has a GMP project management team dedicated to providing personal consultation and support through every phase of your diagnostic product. For each product, we can:

  • Discuss product details such as sequences, purity, synthesis scales and delivered amounts, chemistry, manufacturing and QC specifications, regulatory requirements, lead time, IP, etc.
  • Support your Quality and Regulatory staff with FDA submissions by assisting with risk assessment, validation documentation, stability studies, etc.
  • Provide help with oligonucleotide design, assay development, or application usage
  • Give regular updates on the current production status

Dyes and Quenchers

Since our introduction of the Black Hole Quencher® (BHQ®) dyes in 2000, BHQ dyes have become the dark quencher of choice in the DNA marketplace. Other proprietary dyes include the CAL Fluor® and Quasar® dyes, which are vibrant, high performing fluorophores designed to perfectly complement the BHQ dyes. LGC Biosearch can also manufacture many other dyes such as FAM, TET, HEX, JOE, etc., to supply any combination of fluorescence-quenched probes.

LGC Biosearch offers flexible and different levels of licensing programs that can be tailored to the terms of your project. Partner with LGC Biosearch so you can consolidate your oligo supply and dye licensing needs. Contact licensing@biosearchtech.com with any related questions.

State-of-the-Art Production Facilities

A vertically integrated structure allows LGC Biosearch to precisely control the raw materials and manufacturing process, reducing costs and turnaround time. These advantages and LGC Biosearch’s ability to manufacture diagnostic components containing BHQ dyes make LGC Biosearch the ideal partner for medical device development.

DNA Synthesis
IVD Purification Lab

Our synthesis skill set includes:

  • Fluorogenic probes and primers to fuel various platforms such as: real-time qPCR thermal cyclers, Luminex®-based systems and isothermal amplification
  • Synthesis scales ranging from 25 nanomoles to several millimoles
  • Unmodified oligos as long as 200 bases
  • Synthesis of oligos with a vast selection of modifications, RNA, DNA-RNA hybrids, and other complex and rare specialty bases

Whether you need HPLC purified oligos mixed and normalized in custom buffers, or bulk oligos, LGC Biosearch can deliver. We offer a variety of purification options and highly customizable formulation and delivery specifications tailored to your product requirements.


Quality Management

The LGC Biosearch Quality Management System (QMS) within IVD oligo production is designed for compliance to ISO 13485:2016 and the requirements of 21 CFR Part 820 (as applicable). Our QMS documentation results in reproducible components that consistently meet the needs of our clients. Our production batch records provide full process traceability and undergo systematic scrutiny during Quality Assurance review and release.
