One of our primary challenges during the early days of the pandemic was managing the supply chain to accommodate an unprecedented 10-fold increase in global demand for products to support COVID-19 testing. Grace was, and continues to be, very collaborative, flexible and accommodating.

About Promega Corporation (Promega)

Promega is a leader in providing innovative solutions and technical support to the life sciences industry. The company’s portfolio of over 4,000 products, including reagents and instrumentation, support a range of life science work across areas such as cell biology; DNA, RNA and protein analysis; drug development; human identification and molecular diagnostics.

Grace and Promega

Promega’s collaboration with Grace dates back to the mid-1990s, when both companies started to jointly work on paramagnetic silica beads. Today, both companies continue their strong relationship, developing new product concepts and accelerating their commercialization.

COVID-19 support

Promega products are used worldwide in COVID-19 research and vaccine development. Hospitals, clinical diagnostic laboratories and molecular diagnostic manufacturers also use Promega products to support SARS-CoV-2 testing globally. The products Promega manufactures from materials supplied by Grace are used in SARS-CoV-2 PCR testing to extract viral nucleic acid from patient samples. This step of the testing workflow is referred to as “sample preparation.”

Grace was one of our suppliers who ramped up production significantly to support our demand, scaling up its production and supply to Promega just in time due to a major increase in demand for our purification resin… this was critical to Promega’s ability to support the COVID-19 sample prep market early in the pandemic.
