We offer SEQ rapid molecular methods for pharmaceutical manufacturing to help ensure the quality and safety of your pharmaceutical products, especially when accuracy and time-to-results are critical. These methods help detect impurities and identify contaminants by using molecular techniques such as DNA sequencing, PCR, and real-time PCR, and are fast becoming the standards for pharmaceutical analytics worldwide.

SEQ rapid molecular methods are also ideal for use in public health laboratories, cosmetics and personal care products manufacturing, food testing laboratories, and academic and research centers.
