Customized Solutions Case Studies

Collaborative R&D


Over 45 years of experience in the development and manufacture of enzymes gives us a unique vantage point to provide solutions to our customers. In fact, we work in the same fields that a lot of our customers do, enabling us to collaborate and find the best solution that fits their needs. When working with NEB, you will have access to our array of resources, including a cross-functional team of scientists who have the know-how to optimize your product, and a knowledgeable support team with over 20 years of expertise in customizing reagents for our partners.

The types of applications we routinely support include:

  • Custom next generation sequencing library preparation
  • Isothermal amplification
  • PCR and qPCR-based molecular diagnostics
  • In vitro transcription used to make RNA, including long, therapeutic RNAs
  • Synthetic biology
  • Genome editing

Quality & Specifications

With ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 9001:2008 certified facilities in Ipswich, MA, and an additional facility located nearby in Rowley, MA that manufactures GMP-grade* materials, NEB delivers industry-leading product purity and lot-to-lot consistency. Our ISO 13485 certification closely aligns NEB’s quality systems with the principles used by GMP manufacturers. Further, NEB’s QA/QC program exceeds the requirements we have based on ISO 9001 and 13485 quality management standards.

Our Quality Control group is constantly improving the stringency and range of NEB’s quality controls, and we welcome customer-defined quality controls to ensure that every product meets the user’s requirements for their particular application.

Supply Chain Optimization & Vendor-Managed Inventory


When you collaborate with NEB, you are getting much more than a high quality product in a tube. Over 45 years of experience in the design and manufacture of reagents and a uniquely collaborative work ethic are all part of doing business with us. Our size is also a major asset. We are agile, and can respond quickly to your needs now, and as you scale your business.

Once your technology is ready, we can engage with your manufacturing and operations teams to help you build a robust supply chain of our materials, and when needed, third party materials as well. NEB also offers a portfolio of GMP-grade* materials.

*"GMP-grade" is a branding term NEB uses to describe reagents manufactured at NEB’s Rowley facility. The Rowley facility was designed to manufacture reagents under more rigorous infrastructure and process controls to achieve more stringent product specifications and customer requirements. Reagents manufactured at NEB’s Rowley facility are manufactured in compliance with ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 quality management system standards. However, at this time, NEB does not manufacture or sell products known as Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), nor does NEB manufacture its products in compliance with all of the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations.
