I am a recent transplant from academia to industry. I would like to follow-up on some experiments in the literature, for which I need cloned plasmids. Addgene of course doesn't (for the most part) send material to for-profits, and I was wondering if there was a commercial entity I could order from.

There are a number of 'cloning services,' but these seem to require that I send them the backbone and insert. When in fact a lot of the work is getting the organisms and amplifying the genes of interest into a cloning vector. I suspect there is a commercial service with big libraries of genes that can do 'full stack' cloning, for a price, but I haven't come across one yet.

Does anyone know if one exists?


  • $\begingroup$ OriGene is the first one that comes to mind for me. They have a very wide selection with mostly reasonable prices and often a very quick turnaround. I'm not associated with them in any way. $\endgroup$ – MattDMo Oct 27 '20 at 18:53
