Microsynth (founded in 1989) is a leading European company in the field of DNA/RNA synthesis & analysis. The main activities are divided into the following three business areas:
1. DNA/RNA SYNTHESES
DNA/RNA oligos (unmodified, modified, various purity grades)
Customised PCR probes (e.g. TaqMan) for qPCR and digital PCR assays.
Antisense oligos (e.g. 2′-MOE or LNA-Gapmers) for drug discovery
DNA oligos for molecular diagnostics
Synthesis of oligos (gram quantities) for pilot-scale production
2. DNA/RNA ANALYSIS AND SEQUENCING
DNA Sanger sequencing of all types (incl. GMP sequencing)
Next Generation Sequencing (16S/ITS, Amplicon Sequencing, RNA-Seq, WES, Bioinformatics etc.)
PCR & qPCR & digital PCR (assay establishment & validation, kits for food analysis etc.)
Genotyping (GBS, paternity tests, cell line characterisation etc.)
DNA/RNA isolations (all sources, also in high-throughput format)
3. CONTRACT RESEARCH/OUTSOURCING
Project design and execution of molecular biology projects
At its headquarters in Balgach near St. Gallen, Microsynth employs almost 50 people. Microsynth has subsidiaries in Germany (Seqlab GmbH), Austria (Microsynth Austria GmbH) and Switzerland (ecogenics GmbH).
