ISO 13485 Certified Products & Services for COVID-19



As an ISO 13485:2016 certified facility, Axil Scientific implements a stringent quality management system in the manufacturing and distribution of buffers and molecular diagnostic reagents for the use in in vitro diagnostic medical devices.  

Custom Manufacturing 

Apart from our extensive list of ready-to-use buffers and media, 1st BASE is also open to customization of project/products, from packaging size to formulation and testing, tailored to your needs.

In relation with the COVID-19 pandemics, we are also formulating and manufacturing virus transport media to ease local demands. We are working closely with industry to validate the transport media.

Lookout for our updates for 1st BASE VTM.


Viral Transport Medium

Axil Scientific has recently started manufacturing viral transport medium (VTM) in response to shortages across the region due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The preparation and formulation of the VTM is in accordance to CDC’s SOP #DSR-052-01.

Enquire with us to request for samples and quote.


Sanger Sequencing Service

In addition to its initial role in identification of SARS-CoV-2, Sanger sequencing by capillary electrophoresis can be used to confirm RT-PCR results and provide confidence distinguishing SARS-CoV-2 from other respiratory pathogens.

Expedite service for COVID-19 related research

Single Pass DNA Sequencing (SS1001, SS1002)

A full-service DNA sequencing reaction encompasses the cycle sequencing reactions, dye terminator removal and subsequent analysis on our Genetic Analyzers. We also accept samples in 96-well plates. This is recommended for bulk orders, with a minimum of 80 reactions per plate.

Sequencing+ PLUS is an all-in-one service which enables fast and quality sequencing of your unpurified samples!

1st BASE accepts different unpurified sample type and provide DNA template purification as the first step to delivering you clean, long reads of your gene of interest.
