Norgen Biotek Corp. is the only fully-integrated Canadian biotechnology company focusing on sample preparation. Norgen specializes in the development and manufacturing of sample preparation products based on our proprietary resin/matrix technology. Norgen has developed over 50 innovative kits with strong competitive advantages for the purification, clean-up and concentration of RNA, microRNA, DNA and proteins from a variety of samples. The purification of these macromolecules is often the first step in diagnostics and in hundreds of molecular biological applications fuelling discovery for genomics and proteomics.
Norgen manufactures the leading products in the world for the isolation of RNA, including total RNA and microRNA. Extensive comparisons with the leading products on the market have shown that our RNA purification products out-perform these leading kits in terms of sensitivity, quality of RNA and size range of RNA purified. Norgen also produces kits for the isolation of RNA from exfoliated cells found in urine, for the isolation of RNA from FFPE tissue samples, and the isolation of RNA from plant, fungi and soil samples.
Norgen was the first company in the world to develop kits for the purification of RNA/DNA/Proteins (3-in-1) and RNA/microRNA/DNA/Proteins (4-in-1) sequentially from a single sample using one column without any sample splitting. Norgen also produces the ProteoSpin™ brand kits for protein sample preparation, including kits for desalting, concentration, inclusion body protein isolation, detergent removal and endotoxin removal. Norgen also has a wide range of kits for the purification, clean-up and concentration of DNA from various sample types, including kits for the isolation of DNA from urine, milk bacteria, fungi and yeast, as well as kits to remove endotoxins from DNA samples. Lastly, Norgen offers a wide range of quantitative, ready-to-use, stable DNA ladders.
In addition to the various kits available from Norgen, Norgen also offers a number of different services. As our scientists are world-leaders in sample preparation, we offer our services for contract sample preparation. In addition, we offer FFPE RNA and DNA purification and amplification services, as well as adenoviral vector services.
