Reliable and quality gene synthesis services
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Synthesis of gene variants

"I've used Twist for oligo pool synthesis and for cloning gene variants. Both services are competitive in deliverable times and pricing. Customer service is very fast and the representatives find the right balance in reaching out and maintaining distance. They also onboard vectors where you can synthesize genes into that vector and then send it to you - to allow for better time management on projects where cloning can be a major bottleneck."

Good products, great team, great communication, value for money
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cloning of genes for downstream application

"Twist Biosciences's clonal genes are spectacular. We had ordered clonal genes for downstream applications like protein purification. Firstly the service is prompt and one gets to know immediately if a sequence has errors or can be synthesised or not. Moreover, communication with them is super easy which allows one to have more flexibility in terms of ordering and making sure that one is ordering the right thing. The website has a very user friendly GUI and is interactive. The order processing was prompt and so far there are no reasons to complain regarding their service. The clonal genes came NGS verified which is an added bonus. One can also choose a variety of in house plasmids as the backbone for their inserts. Overall would recommend their services."

Excellent DNA synthesis company; highly recommend!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:DNA synthesis

"Easy to use user interface, excellent customer service, sales representatives are helpful and knowledgeable. DNA comes quickly, often sooner than projected. Once received a tube of DNA far less than the amount it should have been (15 ng instead of 2 ug) and the item was refunded fully. Very happy with TWIST."

Still the cheapest synthetic gene manufacturer with high quality.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Various clones for assay development

"I have ordered 14 clonal genes. Although I have placed orders before, this was the first time that one of the genes failed even though during the order no issues were identified. Still, Twist Biosciences is a leading and the cheapest gene synthesis manufacturer who provides high quality products. The ordering and the whole process is very user friendly."

Twist is a reliable fast service for plasmids
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Preclinical research on DNA repair

"Twist pSFFV vectors are our "goto" when we need to clone a DNA repair gene for validation and protein tracking experiments. It is fast and relatively cheap, considering that cloning would also take a long time and require many other steps. I have ordered more than 10 plasmids with inserts in them to date and it has never failed. The return time is about 2 weeks. I am very happy with the service and will definitely always consider it to be a great support for our research."

Cuts down on cloning work and allows for great sequence flexibility
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Order custom gene sequences for RNA design

"Twist allows me to plug in my custom gene sequences in an easy to use interface and order them seamlessly cloned into my own custom plasmid (on-boarded previously). This allows me to work with mutations and gene designs that would be very hard to achieve by traditional cloning methods - plus the plasmids arrive already sequence-verified. Genes can be imported either as nucleotide sequence or as AA sequence, with organism-specific codon optimization available, which is helpful for transgenic expression. Price and speed are ok, definitely worth freeing up your lab time from cloning, if your lab can afford it."

My favorite for gene synthesis
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Synthetic DNA

"I've been using Twist Bio for gene synthesis since 2018. Pricing is excellent and the the turnaround time is very reasonable (you can get gene fragments from other suppliers faster but at a higher cost. ) I usually have them clone into a vector, for a very reasonable cost, so I can go directly to expression studies. They have a decent selection of bacterial and mammalian expression vectors as well as cloning vectors. You also have the option to send them a vector if you need something other than what they offer (e.g. insect cell expression)."

  • Application Area:Building yeast strains using genes synthesized and subcloned into custom vector by Twist

"I am a graduate student working on a project which requires the construction of hundreds of yeast strains, each carrying a plasmid with a different gene inserted in the plasmid. Twist has saved me an enormous amount of work by offering to not only synthesize these genes, but also subcloning them into the custom vector I would like to use, all for a very reasonable price! Based on my experience with their customer service team, it is evident that Twist truly cares about their customers and the quality of their products/services. Would strongly recommend choosing Twist for all your gene synthesis and cloning needs."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Molecular cloning for protein expression

"I heard Twist Bioscience from one of my friends. I was trying to clone two new protein constructs for my project, they are quite time-consuming. Then we decided to synthesize them. My friend told me that he usually orders genes from Twist Bioscience. I compared their prices with other companies and found them to be quite reasonable. My friend told me that they are quite reliable, so we decided to order genes from Twist Bioscience. We placed the order before the Christmas holiday and received the products after New Year. It was pretty fast. We are quite satisfied with their service."

Rapid service and excellent pricing.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Synthetic gene synthesis

"I recently purchased 15 synthetic genes from Twist Bioscience. All genes were designed and codon optimised using the Twist website which was easy and intuitive to use. Genes were ordered just before the Christmas break so I wasn't expecting them to be deliered to the UK from the US until sometime in January, however all genes were delivered a couple of days after Christmas which was an impressive turnaround (I've previously waited up to 3 months with competitors). The quality and yield of all genes was excellent and I've transformed 5 of the synthetic gene clones into E. coli so far with ease. Pricing from Twist was exceptional, I paid less for these 15 genes than I have previously paid for 6 genes from a competitor. Highly recommend Twist"

Fast, Reliable Plasmids at a not so steep price tag
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Ordering synthetic genes inserted into plasmids

"Here's the deal, Twist is, to my knowledge just, simply getting this work done faster than anyone in the field. I frequently (although not always) only wait two weeks from the time I order until the plasmids hit the lab. This timeframe is extremely helpful and allows us to iterate in our workflow significantly faster. I would not say Twists services are necessarily cheap, but they provide high-quality work you can trust. Which in the end may save you even more time and possibly headaches. They could use some more variation for their in-house e. coli plasmids, but the ones they have are sufficient."

"I have been using Twist cloned gene service for a couple of projects. It was easy to order on Twist's website. The cost and TAT are great. Cloning yourself and sending it for sequencing is more expensive than ordering the construct from Twist. They also NGS verify the clone. Customer service is excellent - You get a knowledgeable service team member within minutes, and they are always happy to help troubleshoot."

We got our plasmids way sooner than anticipated
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Expression plasmid for cell transfection

"We asked Twist Bioscience to synthesize two expression plasmids carrying a 300 bp cDNA each, coding for small proteins. The original delivery date was 17 working days post-order placement, but as the insert was really short and as we needed data quickly for inclusion in a funding proposal, we asked if it would be possible to get them faster. Not only it was easy to communicate via the chat feature of the website, but people were consistently useful in updating us on progress. Also, our request was taken seriously (no lip service) and, low and behold, we got our plasmids way sooner than anticipated! Great service all around!"

  • Application Area:I'm using the clones I ordered to express and purify a protein that was hard to obtain

"They have a variety of plasmids to choose from which saves steps for downstream processing. The software for optimizing the sequence is very intuitive and has a lot of checks built in that help you catch errors in your sequence. I almost forgot to add ATG to my protein! Luckily the software caught it for me. I was able to optimize codons for my model organism which is a great feature."

Great way to save time and money!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Developmental genetics

"The clonal gene service from Twist Bioscience is a great time saver. In addition, it makes it possible to optimize DNA sequence to maximize protein expression in a way that was not previously practical/cost effective. One of the most useful aspects of the service is that you can have your gene cloned into your own custom vector. The service is very cost effective because it covers synthesis, cloning and sequence verification all at once. One area for improvement would be if they would set up an option to allow the synthesized DNA from a single order to be cloned into multiple vectors. This would make the service even more cost effective. One other area for improvement would be if the technology could be more tolerant of sequence complexities, which sometimes make it impossible to synthesize a needed DNA sequence (this is especially true of promoters and UTRs, which can not be codon optimized)"

"It was easy to onboard our vectors and now it is very easy to clone any sequence we want into them. We always get clones from the glycerol stocks and DNA yields are typically quite high. In this most recent run, now sequences failed production and required re-preps (which are always included regardless) so all 55 vectors were delivered before the ETA which was fantastic!"

Frustrating design tool but an immensely useful service!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Synthetic biology

"Twist delivered the ordered cloned DNA fragments in good times and all were faithful. The ordering process was a bit frustrating because the design principles for acceptable constructs are not super clear but I eventually managed to find a compromise that passed scoring. I like the wide array of available backbones though I would hope for a broad host range plasmid (pBBR1 or RK2). I guess, I'll have to remedy that by sending them my favorite plasmid next time. I will order again as it saves a lot of time to outsource cloning."

"Order genes from them often, first time ordering full clonal service. Products are always excellent (perfect sequences), best value for money (much cheaper than most other services), and decent turnaround time (this time even 3 days earlier than promised!). Gene design (codon optimization, restriction sites etc) is very easy on their platform, full construct with vector somewhat more cumbersome. Plenty of useful add-ons (removal of adapter sequences, glycerol stock preps) at reasonable prices. Can see their service constantly improving. Chat customer support is quick and helpful."

"I have used Twist Bioscience to purchase gene fragments in the past and recently for clonal gene purchase. The service was quick and easy, although the site seemed a bit complicated at first. However, thanks to forthcoming staff from the online chat I managed my purchase without any issues. Upon arrival products were easy to use, as they contained enclosed instruction on how to proceed (e.g. if product is delivered dry and requires dissolving). In terms of yield, both times the amount was closer to higher than lower amount as suggested upon purchasing, which is also good. Sequencing for both types of products resulted in exact match."

Great product, cost effective.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Recombinant protein production

"I ordered the clonal gene for my recombinant protein expression in E.coli. The subcloning was fast in my desired vector and half the price of the other company. I am happy with the service and products and have been a regular customer since 2020. I would definitely order all my clonal genes from Twist bioscience."

Awesome parts, very affordable even for amateur biologists budget!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Plant genetic engineering and amateur biology

"I've been buying Twist genes both clonal and fragments since late 2017. The customer service has been great and products have always been exactly as requested. Shipping times are quick even during a pandemic where most just did not ship, they kept a 17 day turnaround which all things considered is lightning fast. Seamless ordering process and easy to use website with no excess cruft that other synth houses have. Highly recommending their services, especially the ultra fast fragments service of which I have yet to get a faulty clone from!"

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Expression of gene of interest in B cells using plasmids

"My life completely changed when I discovered Twist Bioscience because I started to buy the plasmids that I need instead of doing them by myself. The results are much faster, reproducible and reliable. The online platform is super easy to use and the team of customer service is available for you at any time in less than one minute of waiting. The service is amazing! Thank you!"

Efficient gene synthesis and cloning.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Gene structure-function analysis

"Gene synthesis antiquates some tedious aspects of experimentation. Twist Biosciences streamlines the process of ordering expression clones. All steps up to and including quote generation are handled through their intuitive web-based ordering interface. The entire process is simple and efficient, and allows you to keep track of multiple projects and to share information with collaborators. Twist follows up after the ordering process. I ordered a set of gene variants cloned into expression vectors and I received them within 2 weeks. The price was half that of competitors ($0.09/base). I will continue to use Twist for future gene synthesis services."
