Product Performance & Comparison
Unlike many vendors and distributors, Civic Bioscience performs Product Performance & Comparison tests in order to offer Canadian Scientists the Best Products, Assurance of Quality and overall Performance.
Our Current Product Performance & Comparison tests cover DNA Polymerases, Nucleic Acid Extraction Kits and other products which are testable using our current laboratory equipment. We try our best to make our Product Performance & Comparison tests clear, complete and respect our competitors. We shall, under no circumstances whatsoever, falsify any data or reagent used in order to favor the our suppliers’ products. Our goal is to offer you, Canadian scientists, a clear vision of Product Performance & Comparison with leading reagents whenever possible.
Alike our PCR Success Stories, we can compare your current reagents with our comparable products before you convert to Civic Bioscience. This is a FREE service that saves you time, reagents and money. Consider this service as our Engagement in Helping Scientists Like You.
