Legacy of Innovation

Quantabio has a legacy of pioneering market leading PCR & qPCR reagents including its’ early days starting out when the team developed Invitrogen’s SuperScript One-Step RT-PCR Kits, Platinum Taq and Bio-Rad’s iScript and iQ/iTaq Supermixes. Most recently, the brand has begun providing leading reagents solutions for cloning and NGS to complement the molecular biology portfolio for sample prep, cDNA synthesis, PCR and qPCR.
