Molecular Biology Services

From high-throughput gene cloning to high-quality plasmid manufacturing - diverse set of tools to accelerate discovery and development.


For most of the large molecules and bio reagent projects, molecular biology is the starting point which involves construct design, gene synthesis and cloning. In addition to standard molecular biology solutions, we provide specialized services to support target identification, antibody discovery, metabolic engineering and translational research.     

Our service range includes:     

Recombinant DNA technology Antibody gene sequencing (high-throughput) Mutagenesis Customized Library generation Plasmid DNA preparation & scale-up for CGT requirements Microbial genome engineering Gene expression analysis IVT mRNA synthesis

Recombinant DNA Technology

Cloning and vector generation:

Gene cloning service at Aurigene supports customized generation of recombinant constructs by various methods for generation of antibodies, enzymes, and reagent proteins:

  • Ligation dependent and independent cloning
  • Recombination based high throughput cloning
  • De novo cloning (synthetic gene fragments, PCR, and cDNA based)
  • Customized vector construction based on client requirement

Plasmid DNA preparation:

Plasmid DNA purification service caters to both small research facilities as well as large-scale manufacturing for biotech and pharmaceutical companies:

  • Research grade plasmid at small scale suitable for cloning, mutagenesis, microbial transformation and protein production
  • High-quality industrial grade plasmid suitable for :
    • Protein
    • Antibody production
    • Stable cell line generation in mammalian cells
    • Bacmid generation for protein expression in insect cells
    • Viral packaging
    • In vitro mRNA synthesis
    • Vaccine
    • Gene therapy studies, and
    • Animal immunization
  • Process development for customized plasmid propagation and purification


Site-directed mutagenesis service enables life science researchers by creating specific DNA mutations for studying gene regulation, DNA-protein interactions, protein structure or function relationship, enzyme function and novel recombinant proteins:

  • Point mutation, insertion, deletion or gene fragment replacement
  • Customized mutagenesis requirements such as random and site-directed mutagenesis and mutant library generation
  • Gene shuffling, combinatorial mutagenesis, alanine scanning and site saturation mutagenesis


Antibody Gene Sequencing and Reformatting

Antibody sequence information from hybridoma is essential for protection, preservation and optimization of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Antibody gene sequencing and reformatting at Aurigene is a one-stop solution for recombinant expression and production of antibodies:

  • RACE (Rapid Amplification of cDNA Ends) using template switching adapter ligation
  • Degenerate oligos
  • De novo antibody sequencing and analysis using LC-MS/MS
  • Reformatting antibody gene sequences into various other production formats like bispecifics, mAb, scFv, Fab, F (ab)'2, and VHH or nanobody
  • Antibody gene sequencing for mouse, rat, rabbit and other species.

Strain Engineering

Experience in genome scale modification of bacterial and yeast strains for production of recombinant proteins, platform chemicals and metabolic engineering:

  • BSL-1 and BSL-2 microbes
  • Gene knock out and knock-in using homologous recombination based methods
  • Characterization of engineered strains using microbiological methods, RT-PCR and advanced analytics
  • CRISPR-Cas9 based mutagenesis

Library Generation and Evaluation

Constructing cDNA libraries, phage libraries and yeast libraries along with provisions for high throughput screening and functional characterization.

Gene expression analysis

Regulation and expression of genes at the transcriptional and translational stages play a crucial role in determining gene function. Scientists at Aurigene carry out routine expression studies by several methods such as:

  • Quantitative real time PCR
  • ELISA in various formats
  • Flow cytometry
  • Western blotting
  • Mass spectrometry

Residual Protein, DNA and Mycoplasma Detection

Residual host-cell proteins (HCP) and host-cell DNA (HCD) are impurities that remain in recombinant bio therapeutics. We ensure that these impurities and contaminants are detected and reduced to levels below those guided by regulatory agencies:

  • Quantitative real-time PCR
  • SPR (BIAcore)
  • Mycoplasma test

The importance of business continuity planning in CRDMO industry

The importance of business continuity planning in CRDMO industry

Both natural and unnatural catastrophic events inflict negative consequences due to the ever-increasing interconnectedness of the global economy. Those consequences are certain to last for longer duration. e.g.; The Covid-19 pandemic is still having a negative impact on the global economy. Maintaining continuity is critical for all businesses, but perhaps no othe...

Accelerating Drug Discovery Through Innovative Partnerships

Genomics plays a vital role in identifying which gene is associated with a specific disease. A gene called CNOT1 is for example known for it's effect on brain development and for impairing memory and learning. Despite the great promise genomics provides in understanding the disease, genes are not the best drug targets....

Systematic formulation design - shorten development cost & time

Project Challenge: Existing formulation (lower strength - 50 mg) was manufactured using direct compression process. This formulation posed poor powder flow and content uniformity issues during scale-up. Development of new strength 150 mg without any process issues was a challenge. Solution design: Preliminary pre-formulation, stress study and PSD impact assessmen...

A metal catalyst-free and one-pot synthesis of (3,4- dihydro-2H-benzo[b][1,4]oxazin-2-yl)methanol derivatives in water


A robust and metal catalyst-free method has been developed for the general and green synthesis of racemic (3,4-dihydro-2H-benzo[b][1,4] oxazin-2-yl)methanol derivatives. This simple, mild and practical method involves the reaction of 2-aminophenols with ()-epichlorohydrin in the presence of NaOH in water at room temperature. The reaction features high regioselec...
