Novozymes South Asia Pvt. Ltd.
Do you use gene synthesis in your research? And if so, why?
We have been ordering for the past two and half years. I have ordered around 70 genes until now. I feel as if I am a part of the GeneArt team. I am very happy with the response time. Fantastic service.
Novozymes is a hard-core biotech company. The company’s focus is research, development, and production of industrial enzymes, microorganisms, and biopharmaceutical ingredients.
Research topic – To find new proteins/enzymes. Find novel genes which might be used in the future for producing industrial enzymes. We clone the interesting genes, express, purify, and then decide whether to go ahead with it or not. I use GeneArt services mostly for gene synthesis.
What additional GeneArt™ services do you use with your synthetic genes?
We also use the cloning service. We usually get the subclones from GeneArt either in the vector which we have provided or the one provided by GeneArt. We also use the plasmid prep service. If the gene is ready to use (vector subclone) then we multiply using transformation and then start. This saves time.
How has GeneArt™ gene synthesis impacted your research?
There are some novel genes for which the sequences are available but the microbes are not easily available. GeneArt has helped us in synthesis of these genes. This saves us a lot of time and we can focus on other areas of our lab work.
What do you like best about GeneArt gene synthesis?
I like the quality and the support GeneArt provides. I am very happy with the response time and the after-sales support.
Do you use gene optimization? Why?
Yes, because it makes expression more reliable.
How important is product quality?
The quality of the product is extremely important; we cannot compromise on the quality.
Would you recommend GeneArt gene synthesis (or any other GeneArt product or service) to others?
