Company Profile

Norgen Biotek Corp. is Canada’s only fully-integrated biotechnology company focusing on sample preparation for research and diagnostic applications. Norgen is an ISO-certified company (9001:2008, 13485:2003, 15189:2007) that develops, manufactures, and exports its products worldwide. Norgen’s products include RNA, DNA and protein purification and clean-up kits, nucleic acid-based diagnostic kits for the detection of various pathogens for research use, sample collection and preservation kits, as well as molecular weight markers, PCR reagents, buffers, and laboratory reagents. In addition, Norgen offers a number of services to the scientific community including DNA and RNA purification and amplification, viral diagnostic services, sterile liquid filling services in our ISO-certified clean room, and contract manufacturing.


  • DNA / RNA / Protein Purification Kits Norgen has developed hundreds of sample preparation kits for RNA, DNA, and protein purification from all types of specimens including cells and tissues, urine, plasma/serum, blood, stool, plants, animal tissues, soil and water, among others. These kits include the leading kits in the world for the isolation and purification of total RNA and microRNA from various samples including urine, plasma/serum, exosomes and single cells, as well as novel multi-analyte kits that allow for the sequential isolation of RNA, DNA and proteins from the same sample using a single column with no sample splitting.

  • Sample Collection and Preservation Products Norgen has developed numerous kits for specimen collection and preservation. These kits allows for the long-term preservation of DNA, RNA and proteins at ambient temperature from specimens such as saliva, urine, blood, stool and sputum. Such sample collection and preservation kits are ideal not only for preservation but also for shipping at ambient temperature. These kits are optimized to work well with Norgen’s DNA, RNA and protein isolation kits and nucleic acid-based diagnostic kits. These sample collection and preservation kits also have applications for use in resource-limited settings, as well as in point-of-care diagnostics.

  • Diagnostic Kits Norgen has developed over 100 nucleic acid- based diagnostic kits for the detection of detection of human, animal, plant and food-borne pathogens for research use. Norgen has also obtained CE Marking for a number of their RNA and DNA kits for Dx kits. These kits are designed to isolate RNA and DNA for subsequent in vitro diagnostic use, and are to be used with any downstream application employing enzymatic amplification or other enzymatic modifications of RNA followed by signal detection or amplification.

  • Molecular Weight Markers Norgen offers a full line of quantitative, ready-to-use DNA Ladders, as well as RNA Ladders and Protein Ladders.

  • PCR Reagents, Buffers, and Laboratory Reagents Norgen offers a wide range of high quality PCR reagents including Taq DNA polymerase, Master Mixes and dNTPS, reverse transcriptase and cDNA synthesis kits. As well, Norgen offers various buffers and laboratory reagents including microbiology media, protein solutions and reagents, DNA and RNA solutions and reagents, cell lysis reagents, ELISA solutions and reagents, and molecular biology kits and assays.

  • Molecular Diagnostic Services for Research and Clinical Trials Norgen is an ISO 15189:2007 accredited lab, and therefore offers high quality molecular diagnostic services for both research and clinical trials including: 1) nucleic acid-based pathogen detection from various types of samples including human, environmental, food and agricultural samples; 2) pathogen surveillance; 3)development of novel pathogen detection procedures; 4) molecular diagnostic product or protocol validation for regulatory submissions; 5) development of diagnostic kits from concept to product and 6) manufacturing diagnostic kits for molecular testing.

  • RNA and DNA Purification Services Norgen offers custom RNA and DNA purification services from all sample types. RNA purification service allows for the isolation of total RNA, including large mRNA down to microRNA and siRNA, from all types of samples based on Norgen’s proprietary resin. In addition to the isolation of total RNA, Norgen also offers specialized microRNA isolation for downstream microRNA applications such as miRNA PCR Array Assays and miRNA cloning.

  • Custom Adenoviral Vector Services Adenovirus services include construction of recombinant adenoviruses, transfection and purification of recombinant virus, generation of high titer recombinant viral stocks, recombinant virus titer determination, immunofluorescence assays, virus neutralization assays, in situ hybridizations and custom virus cultivation.

  • Custom Viral Diagnostic Services Norgen offers various viral diagnostic services to the biotechnology industry, based on in-house developed PCR-based methods.

  • Sterile Liquid Filling Services Norgen has an ISO Class 7 certified clean room housing an ISO Class 5 certified Filamatic liquid filling machine which is capable of high throughput liquid filling. Norgen offers fully validated liquid filling services for various bottle sizes.

  • Contract Manufacturing Norgen Biotek has tremendous expertise in OEM and contract manufacturing of kits and reagents for the molecular biology and diagnostics market. Norgen offers contract manufacturing services that include all steps from concept to delivery of the final product.
