Finding the right OEM enzyme supply partner for innovative product development
In today’s competitive market, there are many enzyme supply partners to choose from. Ideally, your own capabilities and requirements should complement the unique expertise of an OEM partner, but finding a good match can be a challenge. It’s important to pick a manufacturer that fulfills your existing and future needs, keeps cost to a minimum, maximizes efficiency, and delivers a quality product or reagent on time and to your specifications. You need to be confident that your partner will be flexible and provide OEM solutions that reflect your rapidly developing molecular biology needs.
When considering a manufacturing partner for your specific application(s), several project parameters should be defined up front. You may be seeking a long-term OEM supply agreement for custom packaging and labeling, bulk enzyme supply, a customized enzyme formulation, or any combination of these. It is therefore important to share your product requirements with the supplier to streamline their manufacturing and quality control process and ultimately help you succeed in developing a quality product that meets the expectations of you and your customer.
What information do I need to share with my OEM enzyme supply partner?
Here are some of the common questions the supplier may ask in order to facilitate the delivery of an enzyme product tailor-made to your specifications:
- What product(s) are to be manufactured by the supplier?
- What is the application of each enzyme or reagent?
- What is the desired concentration of each enzyme or reagent?
- What are the required testing parameters during stability testing?
- What custom functional testing is needed to meet the application requirements?
- What is the desired order size (ml per vial) and volume (vials per order)?
- What is the desired product configuration?
- What are the packaging and labeling requirements?
This is by no means an exhaustive list. However, gathering answers to these questions will afford the supplier sufficient information to generate an accurate quote and estimated timeline. It’s understood that you may not know the answers to all such questions. That’s where the supplier can step in to provide expertise and support, allowing you to focus on delivering solutions to your customers with confidence.
