About Us

Established in 1998, we are a core DNA sequencing and fragment analysis facility based within the Medical Research Council Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit (MRC PPU) in Dundee, Scotland. We are proud to be able to say that since our start we have continued to provide our services not only to local laboratories in Scotland but through the UK and internationally. Indeed we have hundreds of clients who rely on our services.

We provide a wide range of contract research products for DNA analysis and associated services and treat all clients and their samples with the strictest of confidentiality. We are also willing to discuss custom projects. Please contact us to discuss your individual requirements and how we might assist you.


In addition to DNA sequencing, the service has the ability to run genotyping (fragment size analysis) samples of various types. Other services such as primer walking and larger scale sequencing projects are also provided. Regular DNA sequencing and genotyping samples are turned around typically in 24 hours from receipt. Other services on offer are bacterial plasmid DNA mini-prepping (using the robot workstations), plasmid DNA maxi-prepping and genomic DNA extraction from animal tissue samples. Consultation with customers prior to the onset of a project, during and after comes as a standard service.


Customer Base
They currently provide DNA sequencing and related services to over 300 research groups based throughout the UK mainland and Ireland. These groups are within both academic institutions and the industry/biotech sector. A large number of these groups have been customers for many years due to the excellent range and quality of services offered.
