The best custom qPCR assay development service in the World

Primerdesign™ provides the World’s broadest menu of >550 genesig® qPCR detection kits, and fast development of new assays on demand. Additionally, we design, validate and manufacture qPCR kits, Precision Master Mixes, controls, lyophilised reagents, and the genesig q16 instrument.

Our genesig qPCR Detection Kits for Food Speciation provide a method for detecting and quantifying adulterated meat or fish DNA in food samples. The kits allow fast detection to less than 0.1% adulteration and include controls to confirm your results. A wide range of species can be detected including 15 meats: chicken, beef, horse, pig, sheep, Universal Meat and more; and 5 fish: Atlantic cod, coley, haddock, pollock and whiting. In addition, our range of genesig Easy AnimalFINDER Kits can detect animal DNA in more difficult sample types such as food manufacturing wash downs or highly processed foods.

In May 2016 Primerdesign became part of the Novacyt SA group.  This joining of forces allows Primerdesign to accelerate their growth plans and begins an exciting new chapter for the team.  If you’re a customer you can expect this milestone to lead to even better products and an even bigger, better team to support you.
