World's Top Gene Synthesis Companies Establish Tough Biosecurity Screening Protocol
Date:11/19/2009

rdered will also be screened.
  • Gene Customer Screening: A complete and thorough screening of each potential gene synthesis customer will be conducted to establish identity and clearance for delivery of genes ordered, in accordance with national guidelines. The screening protocol assigns special considerations to the ordering of Select Agent genes.
  • Record Keeping: The IGSC companies will keep all screening, customer and order records for at least eight years.
  • Order Refusal & Reporting: IGSC companies reserve the right to refuse to fill any order and to notify authorities upon identifying potentially problematic orders, coordinating efforts with local and national law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
  • Regulatory Compliance: IGSC companies comply with all applicable laws and regulations governing the synthesis, possession, transport, export and import of gene synthesis and other products.

  • “Gene synthesis is the technology driver that will enable research institutions, companies and even individuals or small teams of scientists to develop solutions to the great challenges of our age, such as climate change, world hunger and pandemic disease. Gene synthesis itself provides us with powerful new opportunities to combat the threat of bioterrorism,” said Jeremy Minshull, president of DNA2.0. “We won’t tolerate attempts to misuse gene synthesis technology to threaten the safety of any community. We scrutinize our orders to ensure that our customers are using our products for their potential benefits.”

    “The founding companies of the IGSC have been working hand-in-hand with government and with the greater community of scientists and policy advocates to share our expertise in gene synthesis and to help us all devise the most effective biosecurity practices,” said Damon Terrill, Senior Vice President & General Counsel for International Legal a
