SKANDA provides a wide range of services in the area of recombinant DNA technology, strain engineering and gene expression analysis.

Gene Expression Analysis

Expression of a targeted gene at the transcriptional and translational levels in a host system is important in studying the functional gene. Scientists at routinely carry out the following gene expression analysis:

Real Time PCR
Western blotting
Flow Cytometry
Mass spectrometry
RNA sequencing
