Nucleic Acid & Click Chemistry, Probes & Epigenetics, RNA Technologies

In our chemistry division, we have hundreds of nucleotides in stock. With our in-house expertise we manufacture even the most exotic nucleotide analog from mg to kg scale. Further, we offer innovative reagents for functionalization, conjugation and labeling of (bio) molecules as well as a toolbox for synthesis, labeling, modification, analysis and detection of RNAs, complemented by custom specific services. See our Probes & Epigenetics, Click Chemistry and RNA Technologies sections for details.

LEXSY Expression

In the field of recombinant protein production, Jena Bioscience has developed its proprietary LEXSY (Leishmania Expression System) technology. It is based on an S1-classified unicellular organism that combines easy handling with a eukaryotic protein folding and modification machinery. Besides everything you need to establish LEXSY in your lab we also offer custom expression of recombinant proteins.

Crystallography & Cryo-EM

For the crystallization of biological macromolecules – which is often the bottleneck in determining the 3D-structure of proteins – we offer specialized reagents for protein stabilization, crystal screening, crystal optimization, and phasing that can reduce the time necessary to obtain a high resolution protein structure.
