Eupheria Biotech GmbH: Our mission is dedication to our customer’s research needs delivering high quality RNAi products combined with aligned services. We develop and produce RNAi reagents using cutting-edge technology, such as endoribonuclease prepared siRNAs (esiRNAs). Our company is continously aiming for innovations to provide the most efficient silencing triggers available in the market with substantially less off-target effects guaranteeing best results for our customers.

Our RNAi products provide RNAi researchers with a proven, cost effective and simple way to perform experiments, from single gene knockdown to genom-wide screens. Our enzymatically prepared, multiple silencing triggers lead to highly specific and effective gene silencing. We have just launched a brand new library of esiRNAs targeting long non-coding transcripts from the Mus Musculus genome in addition to the first commercially available library of RNAi mediators for Tribolium Castaneum.




Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) is a leader in the manufacture and development of products for the research and diagnostic life science market. T he largest supplier of custom nucleic acids in the world, IDT serves academic research, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical development communities.

IDT products support a wide variety of applications, including next generation sequencing (NGS), DNA amplification, SNP detection, microarray analysis, expression profiling, gene quantification, and synthetic biology. Platform-independent NGS products and services are available in addition to DNA and RNA oligonucleotides, qPCR assays, siRNA duplexes, and custom gene synthesis. Individually-synthesized xGen™ Lockdown™ Probes enable improved target capture. IDT also manufactures custom adaptors, fusion primers, Molecular Identifier tags (MIDs), and other workflow oligonucleotides for NGS. A TruGrade™ processing service is also available to reduce oligonucleotide crosstalk during multiplex NGS.

Serving over 80,000 life sciences researchers, IDT is widely recognized as the industry leader in custom oligonucleotide manufacture due to its unique capabilities. IDT pioneered the use of high throughput quality control (QC) methods and is the only oligonucleotide manufacturer to offer purity guarantees and 100% QC. Every oligonucleotide is analyzed by mass spectrometry and purified oligonucleotides receive further analysis by CE and HPLC. The company maintains an engineering division dedicated to advancing synthesis, processing technology, and automation. An in-house machine shop provides rapid prototyping and custom part design/control. Additionally, IDT offers unrivalled customer support, receiving approximately 100,000 calls annually with an average wait time of only 8 seconds.

A dedicated GMP manufacturing facility for molecular diagnostics provides oligonucleotides for In Vitro Diagnostic Devices (IVDs) or Analyte Specific Reagents (ASRs) for Laboratory-Developed Tests (LDTs). This manufacturing process is customer-defined and controlled, and facilitates progression from research to commercialization.





Precision NanoSystems Inc (PNI) proprietary microfluidic-based equipment (NanoAssemblr™) and reagent kits (SUB9KITS™) enable the simple manufacture of novel nanoparticles that encapsulate and deliver RNA to target cells in vitro and in vivo. PNI’s technology allows scientists to study the genetic causes of disease to uncover potential new targets for drug treatment, and to develop new types of drugs and diagnostics.

Precision NanoSystems’ SUB9KITS™ enable loss-of-function and gain-of-function studies in primary neurons and in vivo models. Adapted from RNAi therapeutic technology currently in clinical trials, SUB9KITS™ encapsulate RNA in nanoparticles that interact with paracrine factors in serum to exploit an endogenous receptor-mediated pathway for efficient cell uptake and potent gene knockdown / expression. The result is high transfection efficiency with high cell viability – ideal for functional genomics and drug/biomarker target validation studies using “hard-to-transfect” primary neurons and in vivo models.

The NanoAssemblr™ platform exploits microfluidics for the rapid and controlled manufacture of RNAi nanoparticles for therapeutic use. The automated NanoAssemblr™ Benchtop Instrument is designed for rapid prototyping of novel nanoparticles. Proprietary microfluidic cartridges enable seamless transfer of lead nanoparticle formulations and process parameters to the NanoAssemblr™ Continuous Flow Scale-Up System.
