Eurofins Genomics announces the US launch of Plasmid Verification Services


LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 27, 2017 — Researchers sometimes spend valuable resources and time troubleshooting inconsistent data while working with a plasmid only to realize that the plasmid was not what they assumed it was! Eurofins Genomics now has an inexpensive solution that will verify the complete plasmid sequence so that researchers can perform and analyze their experimental data with confidence. 

Researchers routinely sub-clone genes into vectors stored in the lab or use plasmids received from a collaborator to conduct experiments. The sequence integrity of the stored plasmid is dependent on several factors, including the nature of the host cell, the type of the plasmid, and other environmental factors. Errors or mutations in the parent vector can sometimes lead to unintended downstream effects, resulting in confounding experimental data and/or lost time and resources. The Plasmid Verification services provided by Eurofins Genomics US is aimed at providing that extra level of confidence in the sequence of the entire plasmid at a significantly lower cost than that required for Primer Walking services. Researchers submitting samples for Plasmid Verification services can expect to receive the variant table and the FASTA sequence files of the plasmid.

“Complete plasmid sequencing services is yet another new addition to our arsenal of high-quality genomics goods and services that will enable researchers to advance their research goals in a cost effective and timely manner,” said Sumit Gupta, President of Eurofins Genomics US.
