DNA-Gdańsk department was formed as a result of incorporation of DNA-Gdańsk Ltd. - a company with 16 years of experience in providing solutions and tools for medical and molecular biology. It delivers reagents, equipment and services for molecular biology, biotechnology, genetics and molecular diagnostics. The DNA’s offer includes PCR-based kits for molecular diagnostics of viruses, bacteria, fungi; molecular veterinary diagnostics; microbiological food examination; epidemiological investigations - genotyping and strain differentiation; mutation detection and systems designed to customer requirements. It manufactures and provides cost-competitive PCR reagents including DNA thermostable polymerases. DNA-Gdańsk is well known in Poland for its training courses in molecular biology including introduction to molecular cloning, PCR, Genotyping and Real-Time PCR.
In-house R&D projects - Technologies available for out-licensing
Antifungal drug candidate
Development of new biologically active compound with the characteristics of a potential innovative drug, which could be used to treat fungal infections.
Anticancer drug candidate (BS-154)
Development of BS-154 an innovative, potent cytostatic candidate modulating the multidrug resistance (MDR) of tumor cells with proven activity in leukemic, breast, prostate, cervical, prostate and colon cancer models.
Preservation solution for organ transplantation
Development and marketing of a new liquid preservative, which increase the length of time organs can be preserved, stimulating regeneration of endothelial cells and reducing the damaging effects of oxidative stress and cold storage, which should improve the success rate of organ transplants.
