About this facility

The qPCR laboratory at Southern Research provides detection and quantification of client specific DNA or RNA targets in a variety of biological matrices. Moreover, all procedures are performed in compliance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). Our GLP-compliant laboratory can assist in the design, development, and validation of custom qPCR assays to support preclinical GLP toxicology studies, vaccine efficacy studies, and human clinical trials. Alternatively, clients can use one of our pre-validated assays, such as the adenovirus serotype 5 assay, to assist in reducing study costs for FDA-required gene therapy and vector-based therapeutic biodistribution testing. Since the qPCR laboratory began operation in 2001, many GLP studies have been completed covering a variety of biological matrices.
