Link Technologies Ltd. was established in the West of Scotland in 1989 and has since built an enviable global reputation as a supplier of quality products for DNA and RNA research. Initially formed by graduates of the University of Glasgow, the Company began life within the University’s incubator facilities before moving to Cumbernauld then Bellshill. The Company manufactures speciality products for oligonucleotides up to kilo scale, all to the ISO 9001:2008 quality certification. As such it is the only company of its kind in the UK and one of only a handful worldwide.
Link Technologies operates from a single 7500 sq. ft. custom-built facility at the Strathclyde Business Park in Bellshill, central Scotland. In 2008 the upgrading of these facilities to include 2 large-scale laboratories was completed, giving the company the ability to manufacture from small, development scale right up to the kilo scale required by larger clients. The Company currently employs 25 people.
Initially the Company operated primarily as a contract supplier, manufacturing and developing compounds for major reagent suppliers however in recent years they have also been supplying products direct to end-users through their catalogue business. Their main markets are university research departments and companies using synthetic oligonucleotides for research purposes. Increasingly the Company is conducting business with larger Contract Manufacturing Organisations (CMOs) in the biotech sector, providing custom products to exacting specifications in bulk quantities.
The company has also forged successful R&D links to academia and works closely with many Scottish and other UK universities. In tandem with internal research and development, the Company also has an excellent record in bringing in-licence products to market with various commercial partners such as Agilent Technologies, Inc. (UK and US), Biosearch Technologies Inc. (US), the Medical Research Council (UK), and the PNA Inventor Group, Exiqon A/S, and Ribotask ApS (all Denmark).
