Oligonucleotide synthesis has been an essential service to life science research and development. The use of oligonucleotides in a variety of applications, such as gene therapy, diagnostics, and basic research has led to an increase in demand for synthetic oligonucleotides. Over the last five years, commercially mature technological advancements have pushed demand for large scale synthesis beyond what the industry can currently provide. Oligo Factory has nearly two decades of experience delivering fast, cost-effective, high-quality modified and natural DNA/RNA oligonucleotide synthesis.
