Nucleic acids for research and diagnostics

Nucleic acids (genomic DNA, RNA and cDNA) are used increasingly in research and clinical diagnostic settings. They can be used as:

  • an alternative to live micro-organisms and cell lines in disease research
  • a means of producing vaccines
  • a tool for identifying potential drug targets for novel therapeutics in drug development, and
  • gene controls in diagnostic PCR assays.

The Culture Collections team offers a wide range of nucleic acid products and services to support researchers and the biomedical community.
