Great and reliable results!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Gibson reactions and plasmid experiments

"Twist is a really nice vendor. It is easier to order, to make changes and their platform is really friendly. Prices are quite accessible and reasonable. Fragments make it soon and are super reliable when they are sequenced. Highly recommended"

Good company and good products!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Molecular biology

"The software to optimize and modify the sequence is the best. It's simple and efficent. The delay is good and you can know at which step they are for the synthesis of your DNA. When you have a question, the answer comes pretty fast. The price is also good. Good company and good products!"

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Synthetic oligos for in vitro transcription assays

"This product was reasonably priced and delivered quickly. We had tried other manufacturers but they were unable to produce our gene fragment due to the complex sequence involved. Twist was able to synthesize these oligos without a problem."

Great company! Makes the difficult simple!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Protein production, and protein-protein interactions

"I love using Twist Bioscience for their capability to produce difficult strands of DNA, especially my repetitive GC-rich regions. They also have an algorithm that simplifies correcting the DNA into a strand that they can produce. Also, if anything goes wrong they don't charge you and you can even talk to a sales rep to have them handle the case personally."

Great price and comparable (or slightly better) service compared to other companies!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cloning

"I ordered 3 gene fragments. The prices were less than half of what the same gene fragments would have costed from another service. I didn't need to create any sequence changes in my gene fragments ordered from Twist while another service said that the same sequences had too many repeats. I got higher amounts of DNA than I would have from a different company - Twist has the option to give you only 1000ng if you just want that much or to get as much as they produce without a cap (I got 1400-1800ng) while another service I use caps theirs at 1000ng for fragments of the same lengths. The turn-around time is supposed to be 9 business days although it took ~11 in my case possibly due to Covid-19 related delays. The customer service is quick and responsive via chat if you have any questions. I felt less guilty about ordering costly gene fragments instead of going the old-school route for simple cloning to save money."

"The planning and ordering of the gene fragments was easy and without any problems. After 7 days we obtained our strings - it's nearly "clone by phone" just a bit more expensive!"

Best source for gene-blocks, price & service-wise.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Molecular biology

"For standard application regarding molecular biology we were looking for relatively quick synthesis, while also not wasting money, since we are reliant on synthesized genes regularly. A lot of genes are still not accessible through sharing-portals like AddGene, plus TWIST Biosciences is a more secure way to get the product in the desired time frame. The price of around 100-200 dollars per gene is okay, however, if there was a discount for bulk-ordering, maybe this would be beneficial sometimes. I ordered a handful of times already. Usually I accidentally make mistakes in the shipping details, therefore im a good benchmark for the service they offer. I cant complain, they fixed all my mistakes via chat, always answering immediately. I almost felt bad at one point. Really friendly and helpful service!"

  • Application Area:Molecular biology

"I ordered gene blocks (DNA fragments) from twist for Gibson cloning. Website is very easy to use, there is a support and costumer service along each step, if needed. Price is very competitive and most important it was a great success with 100 positive colonies."

Fast synthesis service, excellent pricing and first 2 clones 100% sequence correct.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Gene fragments for protein expression

"Fast synthesis service, excellent pricing and first 2 clones 100% sequence correct by sequencing. We chose fragments because we already have a rapid, standard, ligation independent cloning method in the lab using our own plasmid suite so the fragment went directly into our expression plasmid. Very pleased."

Fast production times coupled with a reliable gene fragment.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Recombinant technology for in vivo manipulation

"We have ordered multiple gene products from Twist Bioscience and have always had excellent results. The turnaround time is rather quick and often arrives prior to the stated date. Our clones have always produced our expected sequence and have been used successfully throughout our experimental workflow. Customer support is excellent. My preferred service for gene fragment synthesis."

A gene synthesis company that confidently provides what you need for your project.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Gene synthesis

"Great quality DNA - perfect sequencing reads after cloning is complete. Excellent sales and technical support team."

Review date: 29 Jan 2021 | Gene Fragments

Synthetic gene fragments are a simple and increasingly popular alternative to PCR-based cloning. Access to synthetic genes has been limited by cost, turnaround time, throughput, and quality. Twist Bioscience gene fragments improve your cloning process by minimizing colony screening. This allows you to save time and money by dramatically reducing cloning and sequencing costs. Think bigger, design on a grander scale, and accelerate your discoveries.
