In 2017, we zealously scouted for innovative new technologies and external research partners that can help accelerate the speed of your R&D and take your science to market via the fastest path. Once identified, these resources are made accessible, hassle-free, through the Science Exchange Marketplace.

We remain steadfastly dedicated to this pursuit in 2018, so every month you will get a sneak peek of the five innovations from our recent marketplace additions that are worth your attention. Sit back and Take 5! If something grabs your interest, click on the provided link to learn more about each service.



This technology provides complete sequence information of genes, oncogenes in patients, and transgenes, integration sites and gene editing events in (CHO) cell lines and animal models.

By designing a primer pair specific for a locus of interest, TLA enables the amplification and sequencing of > 10,000s of basepairs of surrounding sequence information.



VariantFind multisite saturation mutagenesisVARIANTFIND™ (AKA MULTISITE SATURATION MUTAGENESIS)

This flexible and scalable PCR-based platform can create DNA libraries for any gene of interest.

The platform is not limited by target gene length or %GC composition and all variants are generated by using a targeted mutagenesis approach.






This technology involves patented microplates, in standard 384-well format, but with each well containing 150 individual microwells, in each of which can be grown a different 3D cell culture/spheroid.

This ultra-high-throughput platform improves data consistency and reduces the number of replicate plates required, saving time and money for the investigator.




This service can identify all the known pathogens including bacteria, viruses, and even fungi simultaneously in a single test using sequencing and genomic analysis approaches.

With genetic sequencing and advanced informatics, Xplore-NGS testing produces faster and more accurate results than culture-based methods and other molecular-based approaches.





This technology uses hydrogel formulations to mimic properties of native tissue, such as fat, muscle, and skin. Resulting “phantoms” can be used to test medical devices and surgical tools.

Some of the diverse applications of tissue phantoms include skin substitutes for testing sutures, casts of major organs for surgical training, and arterial models of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
