Custom Controls

Asuragen provides high quality, custom molecular controls by leveraging a combination of and manufacturing expertise. Our suite of custom products includes Armored RNA®, Armored RNA Quant® and Armored DNA Quant™, plasmid DNA (circular and linearized) and in vitro transcribed RNA; providing unique, target-specific controls to meet your needs.

Armored Controls have been utilized in IVD-approved assays for more than 20 years and continue to serve as an important tool in the rapidly evolving space of molecular diagnostics.

Armored Technology

Armored RNA® and Armored DNA™ technologies stabilize and protect nucleic acids from nuclease degradation by packaging them in a protective protein coat. Armored reagents deliver several end-user benefits, including:

Optimized Workflow
Armored RNA®, Armored RNA Quant® and Armored DNA Quant™ controls can be added directly to human matrices as an exogenous internal control for extraction with most nucleic acid isolation methods and detection in molecular assays.

Flexibility
Nuclease-resistant protein coat can also be removed by heat lysis for direct detection as a positive run control.
For Armored RNA Quant® and Armored DNA Quant™, analytical quantification is performed with a validated method referencing a NIST-traceable phosphate standard.

Plasmid DNA

Circular and Linearized Plasmid DNA
Asuragen’s high quality plasmid preparations and cGMP manufacturing can be used to generate both circular and linearized DNA from customer-provided in silico sequences or plasmid stock.

In Vitro Transcribed RNA (IVT-RNA)

High quality IVT-RNA can be generated from an existing or de novo cloned plasmid DNA stock containing a target sequence downstream from the T7 promoter (preferred) or from SP6 or T3 promoters (upon request).

Collectively, Asuragen custom development and manufacturing capabilities provide key end-user benefits, including:

Simplicity
Starting with a customer-derived in silico target sequence or plasmid stock, Asuragen oversees all necessary development and manufacturing activities, as needed, to meet customer specifications and requirements.

Scalability
Manufacturing of all custom products can be scaled from microgram to milligram levels at specified concentrations to meet individual needs.

Supply Continuity
Long-term cell banking of E. coli host in our validated cryopreservation system ensures continuity in ongoing supply.
